Enable users

Enable and manage the users for the survey, including assigning a Primary Contact and Signing Surveyor for the survey. These can be the same person.


  • A survey must have one Primary Contact and one Signing Surveyor. These roles can be changed, but a new Primary Contact and Signing Surveyor should be re-assigned before a user can be removed.  
    • The Primary Contact for a survey must be from the firm responsible for submitting the survey.
    • The Signing Surveyor for a survey can be from the firm submitting the survey or an external firm.
    • Users from your firm or external users can be assigned rights to work on a particular dataset.


In New Landonline, contractors associated with a Firm are able to view all surveys (including the captured data). 

This means that Contractors using the new Survey application will have read-only view of all the Firm’s surveys, including those they are not assigned as an enabled user. See Contractors for more information.
