When you buy printed scales from our Walmyr Store ( https://shop.walmyr.com ), you can now score them free in WAS EASy. (This feature takes the place of our sunsetted product, WASSPWeb.) It's as simple as:
You can add respondents to an existing administration record by clicking the Score Scale button from that administration's detail view.
We've reorganized the information in the Account Details view to use more tabs to separate the data. We now have tabs for:
If you'd like to purchase any of our manuals in PDF format, you can now use your existing WAS EASy credits to do so. Go to Account Details > Manuals tab and click the purchase button for the manual you want. If you have enough credits in your account, a button to Buy with Credits is displayed next to the Buy via PayPal button.
For scales that are available in Spanish, you now have the option of sending the passcode email to your respondents in Spanish.
PDF Licensing* is a new feature in WAS EASy that enables you to purchase a license to download and print our assessment scales for a limited time period.
For those who prefer to administer our scales in person, shipping for printed scales can be expensive. A PDF license gives you special permission to print or photocopy a customized version of our scales in any quantity during the licensure period—and score them free.
* PDF Licensing is available only to those who live and work in the U.S. (and territories), Australia, Canada, South Africa, and U.K. (and territories).
Each scale you want to use must be licensed separately. When you buy a license and agree to the terms, we provide you with a customized version of the scale containing a special QR code that provides proof that the scale is licensed to your agency. Anyone can scan the QR code with a smart phone. No special app is needed—most smart phone cameras recognize the QR code and open the validation URL with a tap.
The licensure periods are 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and 5 years. If you license the scale for 1 month, say, from August 1 to September 1, you can print as many copies of the scale as you need during August. When you want to score the scale, find the scale in the Assessment Scales view and click Score Scale next to the licensed scale. Enter the values your respondent chose for each item on the scale. The score is calculated, and an administration record is created along with the Completed Administration Report PDF. You can add more respondents to the administration, if desired, for entire families in crisis or for research projects.
You can also choose Clinical/Therapy or Research* for any administration, and a downloadable Demographics Survey is available for your use.
To see how Licensing works, log into your WAS EASy account and go to https://waseasy.walmyr.com/help/aboutlicensing.
* Students aren't eligible for licensing, but college/university instructors are. Ask your instructor to license the scale for your school project.
We hope you enjoy these new features!
WAS EASy now has a notification system for certain types of events. When you receive a notification, a notification tray appears in the title panel next to the Support link. Click the arrow to show the notifications. You can mark each notification as read by clicking the icon to the right or mark all as read by clicking the link at the bottom of the notifications list. Only unread notifications appear in the tray. All notifications are removed from the system after 7 days, whether you’ve read them or not.
The Account view has a new Preferences tab where you can indicate
The text messaging feature is back*! When you start an administration, you have the option to request a text message to your mobile phone when the administration is finished (all respondents have answered). If you choose this option, a small fee is added to the cost of the administration. For the US and Canada, the fee is $0.01 per administration.
Currently, text messages are available only for completed administration alerts.
* The text messaging feature can be enabled in Account Details > User Info. Edit your profile to access the text messaging option:
If you haven’t yet verified your mobile phone number, you’ll be sent a text message with a 6-digit code. You must enter the code within five minutes to activate text messaging. If you don’t enter the code in time, the text messaging option reverts to No, don’t text me.
31 May 2021 updates are described below.
As in the previous version, WAS EASy can email a passcode to your respondent(s), if you’d like. Sometimes emails from our system get trapped in spam filters, and sometimes there are typos in the email address. If your respondent does not receive the email, you can now resend it by clicking the Resend Passcode icon.
This gives you the option of sending the passcode to the same email address or a different one (including to a different respondent altogether).
After your respondents take the assessment, you can delete the email passcodes file without having to wait 180 days after the administration expires for the system to automatically remove them.
If you want the email address on the completed administration report, download the report first. Once the email passcodes file is deleted, email addresses will not appear on those reports.
For administrations that expired without recording responses from the respondent(s), you can request a refund. Click on the expired administration (shown in gray text in the list view) and click Request Refund. A support ticket is automatically created. Refund requests might take up to two business days to investigate and process. The cost of the administration is refunded to your WAS EASy credit balance. You’ll receive an email confirmation when this request has been completed.
The refund button appears only if none of the respondents submitted responses.
If you have any administrations that expired at least one month ago without receiving responses, they’ll be automatically refunded shortly. Watch for an email letting you know which administrations were canceled and how much credit was refunded to your WAS EASy account.
For administrations expired less than 30 days ago, you can extend the deadline for a month to give respondents more time.
Respondent passcodes made up of random letters and numbers are difficult to type in, so we made them friendlier. They now consist of two words and two numbers, making them much easier to type.
Like for Administrations, you can assign an alias for each respondent passcode. PLEASE… do NOT use your clients’ full names or any info that could identify someone! If our database gets hacked, you wouldn’t want your clients’ identifying info to fall into the hands of the unscrupulous. Keep it to first name + last initial (or first initial + last name), a client ID in your system, or some other name that identifies the respondent to you without risking their privacy.
Respondent and Administration aliases are for your benefit only; they are never displayed in any emails or page we send or present to respondents.
Now you can choose whether to view the respondents’ results in Spanish for the MPSI, CSI, and CSI-SF! The responses, answers, and subscale names are also available in Spanish on the completed administration report.
This feature was suggested by one of our customers. If you have ideas you’d like to see implemented, create a support request of Type "Suggestion," and we’ll see what we can do for a future update!
We’ve finished digitizing the Manual Tecnico del MPSI. Now, you can purchase the MPSI Technical Manual PDF in English or Spanish (or both!).
Those who have already purchased the MPSI Technical Manual PDF in English can also download the Spanish version.
The report has been fixed. It shows you the number of administrations you performed in the selected time period and breaks down the numbers by scale.
We hope these improvements will enhance your experience with WAS EASy. Thanks for being our customer!
