Send a survey from Dynamics 365
An administrator must install the Send Customer Voice survey from Dynamics 365 app in your environment for you to send surveys from customer engagement applications. If the option to send surveys isn't visible, contact your administrator.
An administrator must configure the Power Automate flow to send surveys. More information: Configure the Power Automate flow.
Users must at least have the Survey Sender role to send the survey through Dynamics 365 apps.
You can send a survey to your customer from within the customer engagement application's interface. This helps you to send a survey at the right time in the customer's journey. Let's consider the following scenario:
As a sales representative, you don't have access to surveys in Dynamics 365 Customer Voice. With this capability, you can send the survey from a customer engagement application without requiring access to Dynamics 365 Customer Voice.
As a salesperson, you can send a survey from the following entities:
You can only send surveys that are shared with you or created by you. If no surveys are shared with you, you can create a new survey (if you have permission to create a survey) and then send it to your customers. If you have Share privilege on the Customer Voice survey entity, you can share a survey with other users or team. More information: Share a survey
