  • New Accounts

On first login, from the account Overview page, click on the "Add a Datasource" button:

  • Existing Accounts

Or, click on the "Data" menu on the the top righthand corner of the screen, and select "Datasources" from the drop down menu:



Now, you will find the Simplesat datasource under the "CSAT" category or "All".  If you're interested in other Integrations, simply browse the additional categories that are available for you to select from.




Step 2 - Configure the Datasource

Whether a new or existing account, clicking on the Simplesat datasource logo will bring you to the following page:


Simply fill out the form with the following fields:

  • Name: Choose a name for your datasource - Many of our users will simply title it Simplesat 
  • API Key
    • To locate your API Key in your Simplesat account, please follow these steps:

      1. Log into your Simplesat account.
      2. Click "Account Settings" from the Top Menu.

Step 3 - Test the Connection

Make sure to test the connection to make sure all settings are correct.  Once successful, save the datasource.
