In SmartPLS, you can get unstandardized path coefficients in the IPMA (importance-performance map analysis) analysis. Follow these steps to run IPMA in SmartPLS (v.3):

First, select IMPA from the 'Calculation' menu

Second, select a dependent variable as the target (SAT in this example)

enter image description here

Third, open the report and click 'Latent Variables' to see the scores

enter image description here

Fourth, by default, you will see standardized scores. Click on 'Unstandardized'

enter image description here

Fifth, you will find what you are looking for here. In this example, the survey response scale was a 1-7 Likert. Therefore, the unstandardized scores are in the range of 1-7.
