Application Forms in Qualtrics

Creating and administering application forms for grants and courses seems like an easy enough problem to solve with software, but program managers and administrators often find themselves in the middle of an application cycle realizing they might not be getting the information that they need. 

After assessing the tools available in the market to make these application forms and workflows possible, we made the decision to leverage the Harvard University license for Qualtrics.

What the process of implementing Qualtrics for creating these forms taught us was surprising: it wasn’t just having a software tool that could create custom forms that made our application offering cycles smooth and easy; it was also the workflow that we helped to create in collaboration with our colleagues throughout Harvard Catalyst that made the difference.

The result of doing the work to make this software work for our needs was a self-serve model for program managers and administrators to easily create forms and applications for a variety of important offerings.
