How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

Remote and Home Working DISC Reports

Using DISC to understand and manage a remote team

With more workers now operating from home, or otherwise working remotely, it can be vitally important to understand their work processes and needs in a situation like this. A Remote Working report uses a candidate's DISC profile values to analyse the ways that person will work in a remote setting, providing a whole range of valuable insights.

The Remote Working report looks at the how remote working will affect an individual's focus and motivation, and also provides a series of general suggestions for helping that person work at their full potential in a remote setting. It even includes a set of general Remote Working Strategies to provide useful advice directly to the candidate themselves.

At the heart of the Remote Working report are a series of eight specialised personality factors, the Remote Working Factors, that help to build an interpretation of any individual's remote working style, based on their DISC personality profile.

The Eight Remote Working Factors

Collaboration

Working together with colleagues in a productive team environment

Expertise

Potential to take full advantage of remote working systems and technologies

Interaction

Communicating freely with others and ensuring that they remain informed

Organisation

Being capable of structuring work, and effectively prioritising and managing tasks

Perseverance

Capability of working reliably and consistently over extended periods

Self-sufficiency

Being ready to rely on personal resources and make independent decisions

Time Management

Productively managing time in the most effective and efficient way possible

These eight factors represent a cross-section of the personality traits needed in a remote working situation, and each candidate will show strong scores in some of these areas. The pattern of these factors in a personality gives an immediate view of where a candidate will excel when working from a home office, and where they are likely to need support or guidance.
