  • Select "GLB: Make standard document" as the action for your trigger
  • Select the email template you made in step 2 above, e.g. "Ratecard | Feedback request | Candidate"
  • Select "Email" in the execution dropdown
  • Select "Fixed email" in the recipient dropdown

Step 8: Collect feedback on autopilot via Ratecard

Finally, it's time to set up an event-based campaign that is sent out to each new contact that is added to the smart group you selected in step 7 above. Within this campaign you can select the form you would like to use to ask the right questions at the right time. If you don't have any forms yet within Ratecard, you can build your own form and/or use our proven questionnaires (e.g. for CX, cNPS, eNPS or EX).
