Use this handy survey to ask your colleagues if they need to collaborate on surveys.

With a SurveyMonkey team plan members can work on their own surveys and manage all aspects of the survey themselves—including creation, design, and analysis. New members can be added to the team to perform specific tasks, such as data analysis.

One of the great benefits of a team plan is that members can share a central library of files and documents, which includes everything from design files (logos, approved images, and illustrations) to guidelines (style guidelines, templates, and themes) and questions.

Let’s dive in to see what your SurveyMonkey survey creation and analytics team structure could look like.

This function works best for someone in a leadership role. In addition to creating, sending, and analyzing surveys, they can also do the following:

  • Create and share survey templates and brand assets through a central team library
  • Add Contributor seats to the plan for stakeholders who want to analyze the data but not to create or send surveys

Different team members have different needs to help them make data-driven decisions. So what’s the best way to set up a survey and analytics team? Here are two scenarios: one for a small business and another for a department within a large business.

You’re the owner of a business with 70 employees. You want to oversee the survey process as well as manage billing and assign members to the survey team. The marketing manager wants to keep on top of customer satisfaction and the HR manager wants to regularly survey employees to get a pulse on the employee experience.

You’ve just hired a data analyst and you’re excited to have this person access both survey types to examine correlations between employee happiness and customer experience.

In the next few months, you plan to hire an intern who will drive a customer experience initiative, and you’d like that person to analyze the marketing manager’s surveys.

The perfect solution for you is a team plan with you as the team Admin. Your marketing manager and HR manager round out the 3-member configuration for a team plan (Admin plus 2 Full Users). When you purchase the team plan, you can add a bundle of 2 Contributor seats for your new data analytics team—your data analyst and your incoming intern.
