Creating a submission survey is an essential part of your call for submissions. It exposes all the questions for which you are seeking responses in a submission.


Surveys are a necessary part of the submission process to gather detailed information about each submission. While creating your call for submission survey you have the option of choosing between several question types as shown in the table below.

Grenadine Event Manager -> Your event ->Surveys->Add Survey

  4. Requires an Authentication Code people will need to identify themselves with an authentication code before responding to this survey. They will also be asked whether they accept or refuse your invitation to fill in this survey. If you’re just looking for generic feedback and don’t need to know who’s responding, then leave this option unchecked. Important: If you require an authentication code, only people who have the last name and an authentication code generated by Grenadine can respond to this survey. You can generate a survey authentication code for a person by going to that person’s Summary tab, or you can generate authentication codes in bulk by using a Grenadine email template and sending an email out to those you want to invite to fill in the survey.
