Firstly go to the "Dashboards" section and click on the 3 dots:

Then click on "Dashboard permissions".

A new window will open showing a list of all users who have access to the questionnaire used as the data source for this dashboard:

Select all users who should have access to this dashboard. Their names will then appear on the right:

In this example, Jane Williams is the only user who will be able to see and subscribe to this dashboard. Both Paul Jones and Mary Smith will only be able to view the questionnaires and surveys but not the associated dashboards.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not make any changes to the dashboard permissions, access granted to each user with regards to the surveys/questionnaires will apply here too and every user who has access to the questionnaire used will also have access to its dashboards.

Remember to save all your changes!


  • Dashboard permissions can only be added or changed by admins.
