Now that your employees have filled out their forms, what do you do with all the form entries? Well with connecteam we give you the option to send all the form entries automatically to any recipients you wish. You will be able to send automatic Excel spreadsheet reports of your Form entries based on your preferred time-frequency, and share it automatically with any email address you'd like! With the new and improved auto reports, you are also able to create specific filter criteria, ensuring that you are only getting the information that is important to you!

In this article we will go over:

What's the Benefit?

Save time on exporting entries manually by sending entries automatically to the right personnel within your company based on specific filters so you can create a complete automated process easily and quickly. Once everything's set up, it will look something like this:

Create your Form > assign it to employees > receive entries > manage status and notes for each entry > have employees automatically notified for changes and updates > receive or send an automated report of all entries, statuses, and columns according to your settings

Here are a Few Examples:

  1. Send the Expenses Reimbursement Form's entries every two weeks at 10 am to the payroll department's email address

  2. Send the New Leads Form's entries on the last day of each month at 2 pm to the VP of Sales' email address

  3. Send Daily Health Declaration entries every morning, starting from 4/5/2019, to the HR manager's email address, only if the user answered yes to the question "Have you been in contact with someone who has been confirmed with Corona in the past two weeks?".
