How does it work?

Setting up SmartSurvey for your University is a straightforward process.
Here’s how it works:


Account creation

We begin by setting up a primary admin account for your institution. This primary admin account controls all sub-accounts, allowing you to manage users, adjust settings, and monitor overall activity.


Adding users

Add users to your account. With our site-wide licence, you can add an unlimited number of users, including students and faculty staff. This empowers everyone in your university community to benefit from SmartSurvey’s comprehensive features.


Single sign-on setup

We recommend the use of Single Sign-On (SSO). With SSO, users can securely log in to SmartSurvey using their existing university credentials. This creates a seamless experience for users, removing the need for managing separate usernames and passwords.


Custom domain branding setup

We will assist you in setting up custom domain branding. This allows you to host your surveys on a URL that aligns with your university’s domain, enhancing the credibility and professionalism of your surveys. This will be applied to all surveys created within your account.


Onboarding session

With the setup complete, we will host an onboarding session for yourself and other colleagues who will be managing the running of your SmartUni account, to familiarise you and your team with the platform. During this session, we provide a detailed overview of SmartSurvey’s features and address any questions you might have.


Go live

With your team onboarded and everything in place, you’re ready to start creating, distributing, and analysing surveys! Our dedicated customer support team will be on hand to assist throughout this journey, ensuring you maximise the benefits of our platform.

You’re in good company!
