Survey Insights

View survey results


Survey insights are a valuable tool used to view information obtained from answered survey question. These insights can offer a deeper understanding of opinions, preferences, behaviors, and attitudes in your workplace.

From the Surveys screen click on View Insights option from the 3-dot menu.

Insight View

Survey insights are accessible to the survey creator or those who've received permission during the survey creation process in the Preferences step. Click here for more information on setting up survey preferences.

If you are the survey creator, you'll have access to comprehensive insights, including an engagement pie chart and a breakdown of all survey responses.

Survey takers, who have been granted permission by the survey creator, will also be able to view similar information, though the specific details they see depend on the view levels allowed by the creator.

Survey insights present you with several blocks of information.

The top left block includes:

  • The title of the survey and it's completion percentage

  • A viewable list of all audience members for the survey

  • The survey creator's name and a link to their profile

  • The date of the latest update to the insights view

In the top right block, you'll find the Engagement Pie Chart. This chart gives you insights into the number of audience members who have completed the survey, those who have started but not finished, and those who haven't taken the survey yet.

The Started category will also show the number of questions a respondent has answered so far.

You can click on each section of the pie chart to see a list of respondents for each category. Additionally, you'll find the percentage and user count for each category displayed to the right of the pie chart.

The third section contains the results for each survey question. For a more in-depth view of each question type and how the result data is represented, click here to be navigated to the Survey Question Types article.
