In Step 6, add questions to your online Reference Form.
What is the Reference Form?
The Reference Form is an online form that each applicant's reference can complete in regards to the applicant. Applicants cannot access your reference form or the questions therein.
References are sent a link to the form via email. Once the reference submits the form, their responses are stored under the References tab of the applicant's profile along with the rest of the applicant's application.
- Control whether references are emailed the reference form automatically (or an admin user must manually email the form) via your camp's Reference: Communication settings.
To manage your staff reference questions, navigate to Step 6 of the Staff Setup Wizard within the Staff Admin tab.
From Step 6, you may:
Add a new Reference Question
Click the link to + Add new staff reference question...
- Enter the question text
- Select a response type
- Select whether a response is mandatory
- Click Submit to create the question
Edit a Reference Question
Double click the pencil icon to edit a question.
- Edit the question
- Edit whether to show the question on the reference form*
- Edit whether a response is mandatory
- Click Submit to save any changes
Remove a Reference Question
There are two options for removing a reference question:
- Hide the question from the reference form without completely deleting it. To do that, make the question inactive by double clicking the pencil icon to edit the question, setting Active? to No, and submitting your changes.
Note: Inactive questions can always be reactivated to re-appear on the reference form again. Admins can also see/manually enter a response for an inactive question, via the References tab of the applicant's profile.
- Delete the question to completely remove it from the reference form and from your database. To do that, double click the red delete button on the far right.
Note: You cannot delete a question once a reference has been entered by an applicant (instead, you can choose not to show it on the reference form). Deleted questions cannot be undeleted. If you need the question on the application again, you'll need to re-create it.
