We have a Smartsheet that is being populated from a webform that is collecting scholarship submissions.  We want to provide a summary page for each application that includes the questions and answers.  So if the sheet has 10 rows (applicants), we want to generate 10 different summary sheets in a view that is easy to read.  Looking for suggestions on how we can automate this in Smartsheet where it will generate each summary based on the entries in the scholarship Smartsheet. 

Thanks in advance,

- John

Hi John,

I can think of a few ways to set this up.

Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

Have a fantastic day!

Thanks Andrée . We are in the process of design this currently, so I don't have anything to share yet. 

The process will have applicants complete a webform designed in Formstack to support the necessary branching actions.  The information provided will be added to a Smartsheet, where there will be one row for each application. 

That information will include basic details like name, address, phone, email, birthdate.  It will also include information like Work History and Extracurricular Activities, where the number of entries will vary by applicant and details provided will include long text answer describing roles, responsibilities, etc. There will also be short essay questions.  

On the backend, the applications will be assigned to panelists to review.  We are looking for a way to take the information collected from the application and present it to the panelists in a way that's easy for them to review.  The idea is that this would be a multi-page view where the information is presented like:

 

Name: John Doe

Phone: 123.555.1212 

Summary of Experience: Short essay answer appears here, where there will be multiple lines of content.

Question One: Short essay answer appears here, where there will be multiple lines of content.

And so on ....

 

Hopefully that helps better explain what we are trying to accomplish.

Happy to help!

I have a few ideas on how to set this up.

  • Create a PDF from Formstack
  • Integrate with DocuSign, and then the panelist can approve, take notes and more.
  • Integrate with Smartsheet Merge to Google Doc, and bulk create PDFs or/and Google Docs on the specific applicant automatically, and you could use an Approval workflow/Update request to automate and simplify even more.

Would that work?

Have a fantastic weekend!

Best,

Andrée
