What if I'm using Google Forms or Qualtrics; Do I need to switch to Kuali Build?

There is no requirement to change, but if you are looking for ways to create efficiencies and streamline, Kuali Build might be something to consider. Explore forms and survey options available at Davidson and consider the following about each option:

  • Google Forms is an easy-to-use, collaborative tool that integrates with other GSuite applications such as Docs and Sheets to create forms and collect feedback. 
  • Qualtrics is a powerful, web-based tool used to build and manage online surveys.  Some specific use cases at Davidson include collecting information and sharing results related to research data and formal studies.  Qualtrics' support is handled exclusively by Qualtrics.
  • Kuali Build is an easy-to-use, robust form builder allowing users to manage and update on their own.  With Kuali Build, users can add workflows, such as approvals and notifications as well as Davidson data integrations, such as majors, org groups, departments, accounts, users, and more. Introductory training is offered through T&I.
