OA Attributes

This episode describes the attributes of an Online Assessment


In this episode we describe the attributes of an OA, this will help you to understand how to complete the OA creation form.


This is the questionnaire you would like to use on your OA. Once the OA is created, you can not modify the questionnaire you selected, if you need to change this then you need to create (or clone) a new OA. Questionnaires in use by OAs can not be deleted either.

If you need to make modifications to the questionnaire we recommend you upload a second version using CSV imports, changes from the user interface are limited to a few options alone.


When creating an OA you have two default roles:

  • Assessor: is a user account or group that has an interest in asking questions
  • OA Recipient: the person you want to respond to your questions

If you would like to make things simpler for the OA Recipient then you need to enable the "Enable Non-Authentated Submissions", this will generate a unique URL that will the OA Recipient (or anyone who gets access to the URL) to provide you feedback. This avoids login, and password credentials for you and the recipient.

Portal Settings

When the OA Recipient logs into the portal, you can let them download the questions, and findings you might record (see findings later on the documentation) and also submit the OA even if all questions are not answered.


When an OA is created you must tell eramba when it should start (the soonest is the day after today) and when it will end. eramba will automatically start the OA on the start date and if you want, it can also stop it on the end date. You can override both dates anytime.


If you want your questionnaires to repeat themselves over time, for example, because you need to assess Risks in your departments every year, you can enable the recurrence setting. This will automatically clone the OA on the dates you set and start it automatically.


You can asociate your OAs to other items in eramba, this is typically useful to somehow asociate the origin of those items (as part of discovery, risk identification, etc).
