Long-time listener, first-time caller.
Our company has about 120 Employees and growing. We are at a point where we need to collect self-evaluations and other survey data from our workforce but only our administrators and managers have user accounts with our Google Apps (because those costs add up!) Since we can’t require anyone to have a personal Google account, we don’t have a reliable way to verify or authenticate the rest of our employees as they fill out surveys. Our solution so far is to hand out paper forms and do the data entry manually.
I’ve been charged with finding a solution. I was thinking it’d be possible to set up a member area of sorts on our website where employees could register and log in for surveys and such. I could get Google Sheets talking to the survey database and we’d be off to the races.
Our public-facing site is hosted on SquareSpace, if that makes any difference.
Anyway, the world has changed many times over since I’ve had anything to do with the back end of a website (it’s true; I’m not a pro) and I’m completely unsure of where to start, but I can probably build it once I get my bearings so I’m here looking for suggestions on how to start.
