Once a survey is complete and responses are submitted, Signals admins can review the results to better understand and act on employee feedback! 🎉

💡 Note: The results of a survey will not be available for review until it is in the sent state, which means it is closed and responses are no longer being collected. If some responses are collected prior to the closing date, they will not be available to review until the survey is closed. This is designed to help protect anonymity.

Reviewing a survey

To review the results of a survey, start by clicking on the "SIGNALS" link in the admin tools.

How does filtering survey results affect anonymity?

How you send your survey either anonymously or disclosed will have an impact on the ability to filter the results. We are committed to respecting privacy and encouraging open and honest responses in surveys.

In Anonymous surveys, the options for filtering will have two or more selectable values, and all other values will be grouped under an "Other" category to protect anonymity. If you create a filter combination that results in 3 or fewer data points, an error message will pop up letting you know that we cannot display this information due to anonymity risk. In this case, CSV exports will not be available.
