How to enable Pulse surveys

For this step, you need to have admin or superadmin rights.

  • Go to Configure>Features.

  • Check the box for Pulse (beta).

  • Hit Save at the bottom of the page.


How to submit your Pulse

When Pulse surveys are enabled for the account, all users within the account will see the Pulse question “How are you feeling at work” at the top of their Check-in form.

They'll select how you’re feeling based on a scale from 1 to 5.

They can then add a comment to provide further feedback behind your rating.

The frequency of Pulse surveys will be in accordance with the Check-in frequency that is selected for the account.


Reviewing Pulse surveys

The Pulse information becomes available in the following locations to you and your manager.

  • Engagement report
    The aggregate data of all Pulse surveys collected will be available at the top of your Engagement report. Here you'll see:

    • Overall Pulse over time for the selected timeframe.

    • The most recent average Pulse (and the number of responses collected).

    • Average Pulse segmented by group.

  • Check-ins tab

    To find someone's pulse scores, go to the Check-ins tab on their user profile. Note that individual Pulse scores are only visible to the employee and their manager.

  • Check-in details
    To get more details on someone's Pulse score, open the Check-in details.


Important notes

  • If Pulses are enabled, all users will receive a Check-in reminder and be required to submit a Pulse — even if they don't lead any goals.

  • Individual Pulse scores are only visible to the employee and their manager.

  • The frequency of Pulse surveys will be in accordance with the Check-in frequency that is selected for the account.
