Ability to split Assignments


(Scott Sheridan) #1

Allow supervisors to split assignments across multiple interviewers.

For example, a supervisor has been given an assignment to gather 20 surveys (with some identifying questions left blank).
It would be useful for the supervisor to be able to assign a subset of these surveys to their interviewers, for example if they have 4 interviewers, they could assign 5 to each rather than the current use case where HQ needs to create 4 assignments of size 5

I am not sure if creating 4 assignments of size 5 is more labor intensive as splitting assignments. The later requires new functionality, UI, etc. So, unless you have something else in mind, I see no point of implementing it.

That ticket was moved to that forum from the old feature request board

The idea here is to split the workload and responsibility, to reduce the workload on HQ and the need to micromanage the supervisors.
In the suggested scenario, HQ can give a number of assignment to a supervisor without prior knowledge of how the supervisor will assign the interviews to their interviewers.
HQ could assign 100 interviews to a supervisor and doesn’t really care how many interviewers the supervisor uses to complete these 100 interviews.

I can understand how this would be a large amount of work for an unknown amount of gain however so am not intending to push hard for this feature.
