CrewHu is an employee recognition software, which allows measuring customer satisfaction (CSAT) with one-click surveys. The data is collected with each customer’s click and the results can be viewed in the CrewHu dashboard.

Inserting one-click surveys to email signatures added by CodeTwo Email Signatures 365 provides many opportunities:

  • simple design and lack of long surveys, which increases the customer response rate;
  • rating buttons can be attached to each email, without any actions from users;
  • get very accurate data on your customer satisfaction level and use it in an employee recognition software.

Creating new users in CrewHu

The first step is to populate your CrewHu account with users who will have CSAT surveys added to their email signatures.

  1. To add a new employee, log in to your CrewHu account. Then, use the left menu (Fig. 1.) to go to Organization (under the Settings section) > Employees.

  1. On the Employees List (Fig. 2.) page, you can create new users. Click the Add button to start.

  1. The Add Employee view is displayed (Fig. 3.). Fill in the user’s details. The required fields are the user’s Name, Email and Profile (Admin, Manager or Employee). You need to pay extra attention to the Email field – CrewHu will send an activation link to the address you specify. Users will need this link to access their CrewHu profiles.

  1. Each employee has their unique ID number generated. You can get respective users' ID numbers by choosing a particular user on the Employees List screen (Fig. 2.). User's ID is the value which shows in the browser's address bar, just after the last slash (Fig. 4.). Make sure you copy each user's ID, as it will be required in the further part of the integration process.

  1. Next, go to your profile page by clicking your username in the top right corner and selecting My Profile (Fig. 5.).

  1. In the HTML source code view (Fig. 7.), copy the HTML code of the one-click survey by clicking Copy to Clipboard. Save the code (for example, to a text file) because you will need to paste it later in the WYSIWYG signature template editor.

Adding CrewHu IDs to a Microsoft 365 tenant

Next step is to add CrewHu IDs to the users in your Microsoft 365 tenant.

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft 365 admin center of your tenant.
  2. Go to UsersActive users in the left-hand menu, and then select the user whose CrewHu ID you have (Fig. 8.).

  1. In the new window, click More options (Fig. 10.) and edit your user’s custom attributes by clicking the pencil icon.

  1. Here, paste the User ID taken from your CrewHu account (see Fig. 4.) into one of the custom attribute fields, as shown in Fig. 11. Repeat this for all users – remember to always paste each ID into the same custom attribute field (the same number) for every user.

  1. Now, paste the HTML code copied from the CrewHu email snippet preview (see Fig. 7.). If you want the graphics to be embedded into the email signature, select the checkbox at the bottom part of the window. Then, click Insert (Fig. 16.).

  1. In the window, find the user’s id value (Fig. 18.). The value can be found between users_ids= and &amp; phrases.

  1. Using the placeholder picker (Fig. 19.), replace the values found in the previous step with the custom Exchange attribute you have defined earlier (see Fig. 11.). For example, if you have chosen Custom Attribute 1, replace the user’s id with {CustomAttribute1}. When you substitute all user's ID values with the correct placeholder, save the changes and exit the HTML source code view window.

  1. For the last step, you can surround the survey with the Remove Text ({rt}) tags (Fig. 20.). This way, only users who have user IDs will get one-click surveys in their email signatures.
