Integration with CrewHu

This article describes how to set up CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro to add CrewHu one-click surveys to your Exchange Server email signatures.

CrewHu is an employee recognition software, which makes it possible to measure customer satisfaction (CSAT) with one-click surveys. The collected customer feedback can be viewed in the form of reports in the CrewHu dashboard.

Adding one-click surveys to email signatures managed by CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro adds more functions and qualities to emails you send:

  • Each email gives customers an easy way to share their insights. Without traditional, long surveys and any additional actions from your users.
  • One-click surveys give high response rate.
  • Detailed data on your customers' satisfaction is collected and organized in the form of detailed reports in the CrewHu dashboard, for easy analysis.

Add one-click CSAT surveys to email signatures in Exchange

The first step is to create users in your CrewHu account.

Creating new users in CrewHu

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

  1. You will access the Add Employee view (Fig. 3.). Provide user’s details. The required fields are the user’s NameEmail and Profile (you can choose between Admin, Manager and Employee). You need to pay extra attention to the Email field – CrewHu will send an account activation link to the address you type. Users will need this link to access their CrewHu profiles.

  1. Each employee gets their own ID number. The admin who manages signatures in your environment will need the ID of each employee to set up one-click surveys. To obtain the users' ID numbers, select a user in the Employees List screen (Fig.2.) You will be redirected to a profile page. On this page, you can find a user's ID number in the browser's address bar, as shown below (Fig. 4.). Save the ID number for each user, you will need it later. Then, continue to the My profile page.

  1. When you scroll down the My profile page, you will see the email signature snippet (Fig. 5.). Click View/Copy and then </> Source Code to view your one-click survey in HTML.

  1. In this HTML source code view, 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.

Now you can accept the changes and repeat the steps for the rest of users you have created in the CrewHu panel - remember to always paste IDs into the same extensionAttribute number for every user.

Selecting the checkbox at the bottom (Fig. 14.) allows you to convert all images from online to embedded. Thanks to this action, the images will not be blocked by recipients' email clients. Click the Insert button to go back to the editor.

  1. Finally, place the survey in between the remove text ({rt}) tags (Fig 17.) This way, the survey will not be added to email signatures if a user does not have their User ID defined. Save the changes.
