Customer feedback provides a bi- directional communication channel that enables companies to transform operational and transactional PDF and HTML documents into a powerful, personalized and interactive marketing channel.
Adding interactive capabilities to a Form enables recipients to participate in Customer Satisfaction questionnaires or surveys and provide information on products which might interest them that can be used for example for upselling or cross-selling.

Interactive Forms can also include the following interactive actions:
– Signature
– Uploaded files

For details see Interactive Forms – Signatures and Uploading Files.

You can use Salesforce reporting capabilities to create reports and charts from this information.
In order to add Customer feedback capabilities you need to create an Interactive Collection that includes the interactive actions you want to add.


Response Example (Salesforce)

 In order to view interactive feedback you need to add the Customer Feedback to the Contacts layout in Salesforce: In the Contacts tab in Salesforce, click a Contact and open Edit Layout; check if the Customer Feedback is in the layout, or add it from the Related List in the required location.
