Integration with CrewHu

This section describes how to set up CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 to add CrewHu one-click surveys to your Microsoft 365 (Office 365) email signatures.

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 for Office 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.

Add one-click CSAT surveys to Microsoft 365 (Office 365) email signatures

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

Creating new users in CrewHu

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

CrewHu navigation menu.

  1. On the Employees List (Fig. 2.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. In this HTML source code view (Fig. 7.), you have two tasks to perform. Here, copy the HTML code of the one-click survey by clicking Copy to Clipboard. Save this code (for example, to a notepad text file) because you will need to paste it later in the WYSIWYG email signature editor.

  1. Here, paste the User ID taken from the Signature Snippet in My Profile of the right user (see step 6) into one of the custom attribute fields, as shown in Fig. 12. Repeat this for all users – remember to always paste each ID into the same custom attribute field (the same number) for every user.

  1. Using the placeholder picker (Fig. 20.), replace the values found in the previous step with the custom Exchange attribute you have defined in step 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. 21.). This way, only users who have user IDs will get one-click surveys in their email signatures.
