Check and Check Box Merge Tags

Onboarding and Workflows supports three different flavors of the *|YesNo|* and *|Acknowledgement|* merge tags. These tags can be tied to "Yes/No" questions or "Acknowledgement" statements on custom documents.  

Here are the different options and how each will appear on the completed form.

Yes/No Questions

1.  *|YesNo|* merge tag will render either the word "Yes" or "No" depending on how the new hire answered the question.

Example as it would appear in your document:
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  *|YesNo|*

Result – Answer Yes by the New Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  Yes

Result – Answer No by the New Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  No

 

2.  *|YesNo_CHECK|* merge tag will render an X if the new hire answers "Yes".  If they answer "No", nothing will appear.  This would be used if there is already a pre-built checkbox (empty square box) on the form.

Example as it would appear in your document:
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  *|YesNo_CHECK|*

Result – Answer Yes by the New Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?    X

Result – Answer No by the new Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?

 

3.  *|YesNo_CHECKBOX|* merge tag will render a checkbox with an X if the new hire answers "Yes".  If the new hire answers "No", then a blank checkbox will appear. This would be used if there is NO pre-built checkbox (empty square box) on the form.

Example: 
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  *|YesNo_CHECKBOX|*

Result – Answer Yes by the New Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  

Result – Answer No by the New Hire
Do you require any special accommodations in the work space?  

 

Acknowledgement Questions *

Acknowledgement questions are used to prompt an employee to verify that they understand of have recieved something. If they are used in Onboarding or a Workflow, it is expected that they will "acknowledge", otherwise the task will not be completed.

1.  Merge tag *|Acknowledgement|* will render the word Acknowledged upon acknowledgement by the new hire.

Example:
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it.  *|Acknowledgement|*

Result – Acknowledged by the New Hire
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it.  Acknowledged

Result – Not Acknowledged (not supported by Onboarding)

 

2.  *|Acknowledgement_CHECK|* merge tag will render an X with no checkbox upon acknowledgement by the new hire.  This would be used if there is already a pre-built checkbox (empty square box) on the form.

Example:
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it.  *|Acknowledgement_CHECK|*

Result – Acknowledged by the New Hire
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it.   X

Result – Not Acknowledged (not supported by Onboarding)

 

3.  *|Acknowledgement_CHECKBOX|* merge tab will render an X with a checkbox upon acknowledgement by the new hire.  

Example:
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it.  *|Acknowledgement_CHECK|*

Result – Acknowledged
I acknowledge receipt of the company’s code of conduct and agree to uphold it. 

Result – Not Acknowledged (not supported by Onboarding)

 

* All acknowledgement questions must be acknowledged by the new hire. Onboarding does not allow acknowledgement questions to not be acknowledged.
