On-Demand Tracking Tool Makes Tracking Search Data Easy
Would you like to participate in the benchmarking survey but fear collecting the data will be too much of a challenge? Then start using our On-Demand Tracking Tool. This tool allows you to easily collect your search data on a year-round basis. You may enter all of your searches and continue to edit them throughout the year. You will also have the ability to generate reports for your administration on all of your search activity. The On-Demand Tracking Tool will allow you to export your data at any time to show how many candidates you’ve received, interviews conducted, offers made, and acceptances for each of your searches. When the benchmarking survey opens, you will be able to conveniently upload all of the search data directly into the collection tool with very little time or effort.
How to Access the On-Demand Tracking Tool:
The On-Demand Tracking Tool is located in the ASPR Benchmarking Portal. If you have not already created a username and password, you will need to do so (these may be different from your ASPR username and password).
Once you log in for the first time, you will need to provide your contact information. After this step and for subsequent logins, you will see that the ASPR Benchmarking Portal offers three options:
- On-Demand Tracking
- Access Reports & Searchable Data (for previous surveys you have participated in or purchased)
- Participate in the Survey (available only during survey months)
How to Use the On-Demand Tracking Tool:
Select the On-Demand Tracking option to begin and then select “Add Search” to complete the requested data for each search you conduct throughout the year. You have the ability to edit each search so you can update them later as your search efforts progress.
You will have the ability to print or export the data to Excel at any time for all of the searches you have entered. When it is time for the next Benchmarking Survey cycle to begin, you will be able to easily and quickly upload the search data directly into the survey.
What Data Are Collected?
A list of search questions included in the On-Demand Tracking Tool can be found on pages 2-4 in the ASPR Benchmarking Survey Questions document.
