A Survey Solutions data server in the cloud is a secure and convenient solution. The data server could be provided for free to the end user and is serviced by the Survey Solutions team. The client has credentials of the Survey Solutions administrator and has access to the full set of features available to Survey Solutions administrator (including creating other user accounts). Besides the requester, only a small number of people from the Survey Solutions team have access to the server for support and maintenance.
An administrator of the cloud server must be familiar with the following procedures:
- cloud server request;
- actions before the survey starts;
- actions during the survey;
- actions after the end of the survey;
- deleting a survey.
A survey administrator may or may not be the same person performing the Headquarter functions. In which case (s)he should also be knowledgeable of the Headquarters responsibilities.
