Decision Stream questions can be created in two different ways.

  1. In Decision Stream, click + Quick Add to jot down a question without filling out all of the specifics. This option is good to get questions out of your brain without stopping for all of the details.

  2. In Decision Stream, click + New Question to create a question along with response options and details.

Once the question is created, you can begin to fill in the details.

  • What is your question - Add the question you'd like to ask your exec. Make it as clear and succinct at possible.

  • (Optional) Description - This field can be used to share additional context or information the executive may need in order to answer your question.

  • Response Type - One of the huge benefits of Decision Stream is that it allows you to proactively think of possible answers to your question and lay them out in front of your exec, lessening the decision fatigue for the person you support. Base offers several response types:

    • Single Select - you provide multiple options, but only one can be selected as the answer.

    • Multi Select - you provide multiple options, and more than one can be selected as the answer.

    • Open Response - A free type field is provided for the answer.

    • Yes / No / Other - Yes, No and other are presented as options.

    • Note: All response types include an "Additional Context" field on the exec view so that they can share additional information or context back with you.

  • Response Options - Define your responses here. Each response can act as a hyperlink by clicking the link icon in right hand side of the response field and adding a URL.

  • Allow Open Response - You have the ability to toggle on or off the option for "Other" with an input field.

  • Resources - Attach responses that may be helpful in answer your question. Slide deck, spreadsheet, pdf, etc.

Additional Features:

  • Tag Icon - Can be used to tag questions you want to group together later. Perhaps you have several scheduling questions, or questions related to a project. You can also tag the date you sent the questions so you can keep an eye on outstanding questions, for example.

  • Priority Flag - The priority flags indicates the importance of the question to you and the viewer of the question.

Once all details are defined, click Save. New questions will be in the Draft column.
