2. Start a New Assessment

Set the organization name, number of respondents, and response deadline of the assessment.

An e-mail with the link to the Questionnaire Response page for the assessment will be delivered.


If you register each respondent's e-mail address, e-mails with the link to the Questionnaire Response page and reminder e-mails will be sent to respondents automatically. It will be useful if you prepare an Excel or CSV file with the list of respondents. For further information on the Automatically Send E-mails Function, click here.


If you will not use the Automatically Send E-mails Function, the e-mail with the link to the Questionnaire Response page will be sent only to you. You will need to share the link with all respondents.

The account user will pay for each assessment based on the number of respondents (500 JPY/person). The Optional Report Function is available for 30,000 JPY per attribute/group.

Payment can be made through PayPal either by credit card or your PayPal account.
