Managing User Accounts

Survey Solutions Server Observer

Observer is an optional account, kind of an HQ user with a limited functionality, to passively monitor a survey. Observer accesses information through impersonation, looking through the eyes of a different user. An observer can do: Read individual interviews including any comments left; See reports; See lists of users and their profiles. An observer can not do: approve/reject interviews; create/delete assignments. any other change-state operations; download data. An observer account is created for a server, not for a survey!

Survey Solutions Server Administrator

Every Survey Solutions server has an administrator: Local server - the first user created after Survey Solutions is installed. Cloud server - the credentials are sent to the client that requested the server. An administrator can do everything an HQ user can do plus some exclusive actions: create HQ user accounts, observer user accounts and API user accounts (in addition to supervisors and interviewers as an HQ user can do), change passwords for these users; set up a logo for the server and the tablets; leave a message for all of the HQ users and supervisors; password-protect downloadable data; delete a survey (questionnaire and all data); unarchive a user.

Batch User Upload

Up to 10,000 user accounts can be created from a single tab-delimited file, which must include the login, password, and role of the user, and may include additional attributes, like email or phone. Batch creation of user accounts comes handy when: the same accounts need to be replicated on a different server; migrating from a different CAPI system with established accounts; the survey is so huge that manual creation of accounts via a web interface would take a significant amount of time.
