The Single Sign On Authenticator can limit only USI employees and students to participate in a survey/form and it can allow for fields such as first name, last name, USI email, and USI ID to be pre-populated within the form with certified correct data from Banner. This assists in making forms that need participants to fill in these fields easier to complete as well as verifying data with the university’s records. This will prohibit a survey from displaying if embedded onto a website. Post the link to the survey instead, to allow for USI employees and students to participate.
