Configuring the default survey for enhanced services

As a catalog administrator, you enable and configure surveys for enhanced  services in the Application settings of the BMC Digital Workplace Catalog console.  Enhanced services are processed through BMC Digital Workplace Catalog. The default survey is sent when the status of the enhanced service request is changed to Completed. However, you can configure custom surveys to replace the default survey.

Default survey types

You can configure either of the following survey types for the default survey:

Survey typeDescription
Simple (Rating +comment)

A predefined simple survey is the default selection when you enable surveys for enhanced services. You cannot customize this survey by changing the icons or text of this survey.

To complete this survey, an end user selects a smiley face, and then submits the survey. Additional questions are displayed depending on the end user's answer:

  • If an end user selects any of the Terrible to Good smiley faces, the label for the optional feedback field reads, "How can we improve?"
  • If an end user selects the Excellent smiley face, the label reads, "Excellent! Tell us what you liked."
    The following image shows the predefined Simple (Rating +comment) survey:
Custom survey

You can set a custom survey as the default survey. 

For a custom survey, you can design a questionnaire and configure the questions that you want to be displayed. For information about designing custom surveys, see Designing custom surveys for enhanced services.

Excluded services

By default, when you enable surveys for enhanced services, surveys are sent to end users for every enhanced service request that is completed. However, you might want to disable surveys for some of the enhanced services. You can add those services to the exclusion list so that surveys are not sent when those service requests are completed.   


If you add a service to the Excluded Services list, and then associate this service with a custom survey, the custom survey will be sent to end users when the underlying service request is completed. End users will also receive notifications for changes in status, depending on how you configured status updates and notifications.
