Survey Solutions Server Administrator

October 6, 2017

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:

Administrator is a privileged account and can do important actions which may result in damage to data. Assign a responsible and informed person as an administrator! We recommend that the administrator has attended a comprehensive Survey Solutions training.

Some obvious security recommendations:

  • do not share the administrator password;
  • do not forget the administrator password;
  • do not mention the administrator password in emails;
  • do not use administrator account for day-to-day HQ operations.
