Once you have installed the CardioLog Engage add-in for SharePoint from the Microsoft Office Store, you will then be redirected to a configuration screen.

The configuration contains a few simple steps that walk you through setting up CardioLog Engage.


CardioLog Engage Configuration Screen

Step 1: Choose Sites to Integrate with

In order to use the In-App Messages channel (pop-up messages in SharePoint) and target users based on their past behavior (such as pages they've visited), select which site collections you would like to integrate with. Sites are only available for use once the tracking code is deployed for them in the "Add the CardioLog Tracking Code to your Sites" step.

  1. Click Connect.
    Note:
     A global administrator account is required in order to consent to the permissions required to read items from all site collections and read users' full profiles. 



  2. Click Accept to approve the required permissions.
    Note: An App will be created in your Azure Active Directory. It may take up to 24 hours for changes to take effect.
  3. With this section expanded, you should see all of your available SharePoint Online site collections.


    CardioLog Engage Configuration Screen: Step 1

  4. Select all the sites you would like to integrate with.
  5. You can also search for site collections by typing in their name in the search bar.
  6. Select the button next to each site you would like to integrate with.

  7. In order to stop integrating with a specific site, but keep history data for it in usage reports, click on the folder icon next to it in order to archive it. 

  8. Click Save to confirm your selection.

You can go back and add more sites or remove sites from your selection at any point.
Note: The number of site collections available for selection in your subscription is limited.

Please note that the integration process for large site collections may take a few hours up to a few weeks, depending on the environment size.


Step 2: Choose User Attributes

In order to send campaigns to specific user segments based on their organizational information (department, office, etc.), select which user profile attributes you would like to target users by. This information will be taken from SharePoint user profiles. If you have created custom profile properties you can also use them.
It is recommended to select attributes such as department, office, country, job title. 
Note: Make sure that the default privacy setting for the selected attribute is set to Everyone (and not "Only Me") in SharePoint Central Administration > User Profiles > Manage User Properties > Policy Settings.

(question) What are SharePoint Profiles?

  1. Using the search bar, enter the name of any attribute you would like to find and include.

  2. Select the button next to each user attribute you would like to include.

  3. In case Personal Identifiable Information (PII) Concealment is enabled, click on the eye icon next to each user attribute you would like to conceal. 

  4. Click Save to confirm your selection.

Attributes may be added or removed at any time to accommodate your needs.

    CardioLog Engage Configuration Screen: Step 6

Step 7: Choose User Groups to Opt-out

In this step you can select which user groups you would like to opt-out of data collection.

The user group information will be taken from Azure Active Directory. It may take up to 24 hours for changes to take effect.

    2. Data for opted in users, including user profile information and usage data, will be collected and available in reports, however any data that was deleted/not collected during the time period they were opted out will not be recovered.
    3. Using this functionality may result in data discrepancies in some reports.

Step 8: Assign Permissions to Power BI Reports

In this step you can select the users and groups you would like to grant report permissions to and select the specific sites that they should see reports for.
The user information will be taken from Azure Active Directory. It may take up to 24 hours for changes to take effect.

  1. Connect to Azure Active Directory with an account that is a global administrator in your Office 365 tenant. This account will be used in order to approve the required permissions for CardioLog Analytics SaaS to connect to Azure Active Directory.



  2. Click Accept to approve the required permissions.



  3. Select the users and groups you would like to grant report permissions to. You can always go back and select additional users or groups or remove users or groups from your selection by clicking on -Remove user or group from list.

    1. Using the Search for a user or group bar, enter the name of any user or group you would like to find and assign permissions to. 

      Note: Selected users should have a Power BI Pro or Premium per User (PPU) license assigned to them.



    2. For each user or group, click Custom to select the specific sites the user or group is allowed to see reports for, or click Access to all sites to select all sites.



    3. Click Save to confirm your selections.

    4. Share the CardioLog Analytics SaaS reports in Power BI service with the selected users and groups.
      Note: Permissions are applied using Power BI Row Level Security (RLS). RLS does not apply to users or groups who have edit permissions on the dataset.

    5. Add the 'Site Analyst' role in Power BI service to users and groups who have access to specific sites: 
      CardioLog Analytics SaaS Dataset > More options > Security > Select the 'Site Analyst' role > Add each user or group as a member.

    6. Add the 'Global Analyst (View All Sites)' role in Power BI service to users and groups who have access to all sites:
      CardioLog Analytics SaaS Dataset > More options > Security > Select the 'Global Analyst (View All Sites)' role > Add each user or group as a member.
      Note: Since roles are reset in Power BI on every version update, it is highly recommended to create user groups for managing users roles (one for site analysts and one for global analysts) so it would be easier to maintain.
