Reporting Out the Results of the SharePoint Survey

We developed a SharePoint site to communicate the results of the SharePoint survey to our internal audience.

We added interactive features, including a discussion board, interactive slide deck, results analysis wiki, and comment boards.

We are hoping this will continue the “conversation” surrounding SharePoint.

Dear PNW Employee,

Last week, Cindy Miner wrote to let you know that an important CAP survey on SharePoint was headed your way. Today, we’re happy to announce our survey is ready for your input: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Z3YG5NN The 10-question, anonymous survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time.

Your input is vital to help us learn how to make SharePoint 2013 as helpful as possible to the station’s internal communication needs. Although the survey is anonymous, I welcome any questions about the survey, SharePoint 2013, or SharePoint training opportunities by e-mail at mburks or by phone at 503-808-2279.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!

Subject: SharePoint survey to be sent to you next week, please respond to help improve station internal communications

Dear PNW Employee,

USDA has provided Forest Service R&D with SharePoint 2013 enterprise software as an internal communication tool. SharePoint 2013 (current PNW site) is available for our research station to internally gather, store, find, and share information critical to our mission.

The PNW Communications and Applications group (CAP) is actively working to understand how SharePoint 2013 can best serve the station’s internal science communication and collaboration needs. We have designed a brief, 10-question survey to help us better understand the station’s information needs and how SharePoint 2013 might meet those needs. Your input is important to help us make the most of this new internal communication tool.

Matt Burks, Public Affairs Specialist, will be sending all employees a Survey Monkey link the week of January 9–13. Your contribution of 5 to 10 minutes to complete the survey is essential to helping us determine how SharePoint can best be used by station employees and how CAP can best support the adoption of this technology.

Thanks in advance,

Cindy Miner
Assistant Station Director
