FAQ's


Why few participants cannot see a survey?


You can face this problem while setting up new survey. You can see that a survey is visible to other participants but not for a particular participant. There could be a possibility that the region of the survey is not same with your participant’s region. You can check field Region of Edit Survey page and Region field of Edit Participant page. Appropriate survey region should match with participant region.

Why do I see additional, different or less fields compared to the above screen capture?


In Probench you can customize the fields on participant page for some practical reasons such as your internal membership code, third party software code like Salesforce etc. So it is common that this page will look different for you.

Logging in as another user?


As an administrator you can log in as another user using one of two ways mentioned below:

  1. If you know the username and password of the user, you can log off as yourself and log in as them. But you are then not logged in as an administrator.

  2. You can go to that Participants Edit screen or search for that participant on the list page and click the person icon image.png. This will leave you logged in as yourself, while simulating as if you were logged in as this participant.

Please note that this setting is global - i.e. you can only do this for one participant at a time. If you change to another user and then go back to another open window with new user and save from there this will throw an error.

One approach around this limitation would be to open another web browser. As long as they’re separate, they won’t affect each other and you can then log into more than one at the same time. (One for each browser.) (For example, if you’re using Internet Explorer, you can use another browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome.)

Why do participants have a “Display name” and an “Internal name”?


Display names are there to deal with the fact that companies can exist more than once within BOB. (e.g. there are four Accenture’s.)

The display name is the name the company would like to be known as and sees when logged into the system. The internal name is whatever managers find useful for reporting within BOB.

So all four could have just “Accenture” as their display name but their internal names would be “Accenture (Aus)” etc. for each version of the company.

Why a participant is not visible in list or on search?


This may be true if a participant is not assigned to any of the region. If you want to see such participants you can select Show participants without any regions? at the top of the list page and you will see all the participants not assigned to any region.

How to add participant fields?


To add participant fields go to List of Participant Fields and click on point 2 and then follow the steps in Add Participant Field. The added participant fields will be displayed in Edit Participant to get more information about participant.
