Survey Solutions Server Observer

October 6, 2017

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! Hence an observer user may monitor the activity in all surveys that are running on the server.

An observer account can be created by a Survey Solutions server administrator.
