Create Survey Response Report


The Enterprise Service Management (ESM) system allows for building reports from survey responses. These reports can be created through the AnalysisProjects, or Ticketing applications. These reports can only be accessed by individuals with the appropriate application, and the Access All Surveys permissions.

When creating Survey reports, if there are no survey responses at the time the report is created it will be difficult to verify that the report is retrieving and display the desired information.

What materials do I need?

  • ESM TDNext access
  • Access to appropriate Ticketing, or Project application

How do I use this technology?

Is there any additional information I should know about?

Consider putting this report on a leadership desktop, or setting up a weekly email delivery to your customer service manager. Building a leadership desktop that combines a multitude of reports can be an effective means of keeping tabs on customer satisfaction.

Follow-up calls should take place for responses that are classified as "Somewhat Dissatisfied" or "Very Dissatisfied." Use the result of the feedback to determine improvement over time.
