Attention: Many links on this page link back to pages regarding standard Qualtrics features, not just Employee Experience features. Detailed below are the differences you will need to be aware of on each page. While some content may look slightly different when setting up administration for Employee Experience, feature functionality remains the same.

About the Admin Page

Creating, managing, and organizing users is an important part of Qualtrics. These options and more are housed on the Admin page. To access this page, you will need to be a Brand Administrator. This means your account user type is Brand Administrator, or you have been made a Division Administrator of a specific division for your organization. The Admin page will have additional tabs (Projects and 360 Billing) available inside of it for organizations that have purchased Employee Experience. Continue reading to understand how each of the tabs on the Admin page function differently for Employee Experience.

Qtip: If you need administrative access but don’t have it yet, contact your organization’s current Brand Administrator.

Admin page view for Employee Experience users

Summary Report

The Summary Report tab is your primary resource for understanding the usage for your license. It will include both the Survey Platform and Employee Experience projects. You can see graphs for number of responses, surveys, and users. If your organization has purchased SMS distributions, you’ll also see a graph for your organization’s SMS usage. This page also includes a list of the most active surveys within your organization. The Summary Report works the exact same way in Employee Experience as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Summary Report section of the Administration Overview support page.

Attention: The Summary Report only contains auditable responses, which does not include EX responses.

Projects

The Projects tab allows you to search for and manage all of the Employee Experience projects in your organization.
Projects page view in the Admin page of the Employee Experience platform

  1. Status: Gives the status of the project. Blue means Not Started, green means Active, and gray means Closed.
  2. Project Name: The name of the project.
  3. If you click on the project’s name, this will allow you to transfer ownership of the project to another individual in your organization. Simply search using the first and last name of the user you would like to transfer the project to, and once you locate the user, select Transfer.
  4. Owner: The owner of the project. This is the individual who created the project to begin with, unless ownership has been transferred.
  5. If you click on the project owner’s name, this will allow you to change the owner’s user permissions. See the Users section below for more details on how to edit user permissions.
  6. Type: This is the type of Employee Experience project. It will be Engagement, Lifecycle, or 360.
  7. Actions: Selecting Login will log you into the project owner’s account. Selecting Delete will delete the project.
  8. You can search all Employee Experience projects in your organization based off of Username, Project / User ID, and/or Status.
    • Username: The username can be found in the Username section when you are editing a user’s permissions. This often matches the user’s email, however, this is not always the case.
    • Project / User ID: The ProjectID (i.e., TS_….) can be found in your URL when in the Survey tab for a project. This is a unique ID assigned to a project. The UserID (i.e., UR_…) can be found by following the instructions in the Locating Qualtrics IDs by Inspecting the Element section.
    • Status: Matches the Status column.

360 Billing

The 360 Billing tab allows you to view your billing for your 360 projects. It only lists Subjects that you will be billed for, and it is possible for a Subject to be listed in your billing twice if they participate in multiple 360 surveys. Note that the 360 Billing tab does not exist in all Employee Experience accounts. It will only exist for corporate clients that have 360 projects enabled for their organization. Academic clients will not have a 360 Billing tab and will instead have to contact their Qualtrics Customer Success Representative or Account Executive for any billing inquires.

  1. Name: The Subject’s name. This is the individual that the 360 survey was about.
  2. Email: The Subject’s email. This is the individual that the 360 survey was about.
  3. Project: The name of the project that the Subject participated in and that you are being billed for.
  4. Date: The date on which the Subject was billed. A Subject will not be billed until at least one response is completed for the Subject.
    Qtip: 360 bills per Subject for each 360 project. This means that you can have as many people as you would like evaluate one Subject in one 360 project, however, you will want to be mindful of the number of Subjects in your project.
  5. Click Download to CSV to export your billing. If you run a search and then export, only the search results will export.
  6. You can search all billed 360 Subjects in your organization based off of Last Name, First Name, Email Address, Date Range, and/or Charge Type. Click the plus (+) and minus () signs on the right-hand side to add additional conditions to your search.
    • Last Name, First Name, Email: This will be the Subject’s personal information. It must match the Subject’s information that was uploaded in the Participants tab.
    • Date Range: Allows you to select a date range to for your billing.
    • Charge Type: The type of 360 project that was run (From Scratch, Brand Library, or Self Administered).

Users

There are two key differences when creating each Employee Experience user and determining their permissions: you will have to specify if you want to edit the General, Survey Platform, or Employee Experience permissions, as well as specify one of the three Employee Experience-specific user types detailed below.  For information regarding what each Employee Experience permission does, see the Employee Experience Permissions section below. Employee Experience users should be one of three user types:
Image of Employee Experience Permissions with EE compatible user types

  1. Brand Administrator: Can work on projects, access the Admin page, and can also be participants/dashboard users.
  2. Employee Insights Admin: Can work on projects and can be participants/dashboard users.
  3. Participant: Can take surveys and view dashboards. These individuals are created automatically when you add individuals in the Participants section of your Employee Experience project.

With the differences detailed above and below in mind, Users work the exact same way for Employee Experience as they do for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Creating and Managing Users support page.

Employee Experience Permissions

Employee Experience permissions are ones that affect 360, Employee Engagement, and Employee Lifecycle projects. For permissions that affect standard Qualtrics surveys, make sure you adjust the Survey Platform permissions instead.

Project Permissions

  • 360: Gives the user the ability to view and edit 360 projects. When disabled, you will not be able to access any 360 projects and 360 will not be an option once you select Create Project (if the Create Projects permission is enabled).
  • Employee Engagement: Gives the user the ability to view and edit Employee Engagement projects. When disabled, you will not be able to access any Employee Engagement surveys and Employee Engagement will not be an option once you select Create Project (if the Create Projects permission is enabled).
  • Employee Pulse: Gives the user the ability to view and edit Employee Pulse projects. When disabled, you will not be able to access any Employee Pulse projects and Employee Pulse will not be an option once you select Create Project (if the Create Projects permission is enabled).
  • Employee Lifecycle: Gives the user the ability to view and edit Employee Lifecycle projects. When disabled, you will not be able to access any Employee Lifecycle projects and Employee Lifecycle will not be an option once you select Create Project (if the Create Projects permission is enabled).
  • Ad Hoc Employee Research: Gives the user the ability to create an Ad Hoc Employee Research project. When disabled, you will not be able to access any Ad Hoc Employee Research projects and Ad Hoc Employee Research will not be an option once you select Create Project (if the Create Projects permission is enabled).

  • Edit Surveys: Gives the user the ability to edit an Employee Experience project in the Survey tab. When disabled, the Survey tab will disappear from within an Employee Experience project.
  • Manage Participants: Gives the user access to the Participants tab in an Employee Experience project. When disabled, it will make the Participants tab disappear from within an Employee Experience project.
  • Manage Subjects: Gives the user access to the Subjects section of the Participants tab in a 360 project. When disabled, the Subjects section will disappear from within a 360 project.
  • Manage Evaluators: Gives the user access to the Evaluators section of the Participants tab in a 360 project. When disabled, the Evaluators section will disappear from within a 360 project.
  • Manage Managers: Gives the user access to the Managers section of the Participants tab in a 360 project. When disabled, the Managers section will disappear from within a 360 project.
  • Configure Reports: Gives the user the ability to edit reports in a 360 project. When disabled, it will make the Edit Subject Report and My Reports sections disappear from the Reports tab in a 360 project.
    Qtip: This does not prevent the user from releasing, viewing, or downloading Subject Reports in the Subjects section of the Participants tab.
  • Send Invites: Gives the user access to the Messages tab in an Employee Experience project. When disabled, it will make the Messages tab disappear from within an Employee Experience project.
  • View Subject Reports: Gives the user the ability to access 360 Subject Reports from the Participants tab. When disabled, it will make Subject Reports inaccessible from the Participants tab in a 360 project.

This option is most frequently used in conjunction with the Configure Reports permission. If you don’t want administrators to be able to edit reports but you would like them to be able to view reports, disable the Configure Reports option and leave the View Subject Reports permission turned on.
  • Delete Projects: Gives the user the ability to delete an Employee Experience project. When disabled, the Delete Project option will disappear from the Projects page for an Employee Experience project.
  • Reset Projects: Gives the user the ability to Reset Participants for an Employee Experience project. When disabled, it will make Reset Participants disappear from the Tools menu of the Participants section.

When disabled, the Directories page will change to a Contacts page and the Employee Directory will not be available. However, standard Survey Platform Contacts information will still be available, if the permission is enabled for the Survey Platform.
  • Can Access Participant Personal Data: When disabled, the Complete / Not Complete status column is hidden on the Participants tab, and you cannot proxy log into participants dashboards.

Question Types

Qtip: For more information about additional platform permissions, please see Contacts Permissions, Survey Platform Permissions, and Website / App Feedback Permissions.

User Types

Setting user permissions one account at a time can be tedious. Through user types, you can quickly update and maintain permissions for many users at once. User types are sets of permissions that can be assigned to user accounts. Whenever you want to make a widespread permission change, just edit the user type and all associated user accounts will update automatically. The key difference when determining each Employee Experience user type’s unique permissions, you will have to specify if you want to edit General, Survey Platform, or Employee Experience permissions. For information regarding Employee Experience-specific user types and what each Employee Experience permission does, visit the Users section of this page. With the differences detailed above in mind, user types work the exact same way for Employee Experience as they do for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s User Types support page.

Groups

As an administrator, you can use groups to allow two or more users to share projects, graphics, files, and messages in Libraries. Groups can include everyone in your organization, everyone in a specific Division, or only specific users that you manually select. The key difference when creating groups for Employee Experience is that for one particular user’s editing rights within a group, you will have to specify if you want to edit the General, Survey Platform, or Employee Experience  permissions. For information regarding what each Employee Experience permission does, visit the Users section of this page. To edit a specific user’s permissions in a group, click on the group name in the Groups tab and then click on the user’s name to view the editing window below.

With the difference detailed above in mind, groups work the exact same way for Employee Experience as they do for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s User Groups support page.

Qtip: The groups listed on the Directories page are not the same as the groups here on the Admin page!

Group Types

Group types, similar to User Types, are sets of permissions that determine what a user is allowed to do with content owned by a group. The group type permissions will apply to all group members, unless otherwise specified for an individual member. The key difference when creating groups for Employee Experience is that for one particular user’s editing rights within a group, you will have to specify if you want to edit the General, Survey Platform, or Employee Experience permissions. For information regarding what each Employee Experience permission does, visit the Users section of this page.

With the difference detailed above in mind, group types work the exact same way for Employee Experience as they do for the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Group Types section of the User Groups support page.

Coupon Codes

As a Brand Administrator of a large organization, Coupon Codes (or Upgrade Codes) make managing user permissions easier. Rather than changing permissions one-by-one for several users, you can create Coupon Codes that change User Type or Division. Once you’ve created the code, you simply email it to your users and they’ll enter the code into their account to update permissions on their existing accounts, or use these codes during the sign-up process. Coupon Codes work the exact same way in Employee Experience as they do in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Coupon Codes support page.

Data Privacy

The Data Privacy tab in an Employee Experience brand has access to the Right to Erasure (GDPR Compliance) tool and the Sensitive Data Policy tool.

Organization Settings

The Organization Settings tab allows you to view and manage options that apply to your whole license. From here, you can set up contact info, password parameters, logout redirects, and more. Organization Settings work the exact same way in Employee Experience as they do in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Organization Settings support page.

Divisions

With divisions, you can segment your license into smaller entities. You can give different divisions specific permissions for their users, and you can give specific users full administrative access for other users within their own division. The key difference when creating divisions for Employee Experience is that when determining each division’s unique permissions, you will have to specify if you want to edit the General, Survey Platform, or Employee Experience permissions. For information regarding what each Employee Experience permission does, visit the Users section of this page. There will be one Employee Experience permission that is unique to divisions: Allow Non-Self Evaluations. This permission applies to 360 projects only and will allow Subjects to complete surveys evaluating individuals other than themselves.
