Users and Privileges (Survey)

Kinesis allows for multiple user accounts with privileges that can be adjusted accordingly.

Setting up Users and Privileges

Users and Privileges is found within the General management menu. Accounts can be created for Admin level users who have full privileges or basic user accounts can be created with privileges manually defined. All existing users can be viewed, modified, or deleted from the “Users and Privileges” page.

Note: The number of user accounts may be restricted according to your licensing agreement. Survey also supports configurable password strength - length, number of special characters and numberic requirements can be enforced for user passwords. To utilize this feature, contact your account manager.

Add new user

The following fields are required when adding new users and can also be modified for existing users:

  • Username
  • Email address
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Time Zone
  • Account Role (User or Admin)
  • Create new surveys (Yes or No)
  • Password

Modifying privileges

For basic user accounts, privileges need to be manually set for each survey. After selecting Modify privileges from the Users and Privileges page, you are able to select which survey or group of surveys you want to add/modify privileges for. Next, you will then be able to select which users you will be adding/modifying privileges for. The following privileges can be turned on and off by clicking the corresponding checkbox(es).
