Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do questions cycle through Pulse?
A: Each employee sees every question at least once before they receive the same question again. Let's say you have a weekly cadence set with a 60 question survey and a 5 question limit. An employee would receive 5 random questions a week for 12 weeks, i.e. until they have seen each question once. Then it would cycle through the questions again.
Q: When is my Team receiving a Pulse?
A: When Pulse is first launched all members will receive the same set of questions at different times, our algorithm looks at time zone among other factors and will Pulse members at random to remove biases.
Q: Why did my team member receive different questions in their Pulse?
A: The first Pulse will contain the same set of questions across the org, all subsequent Pulses will randomize the questions in addition to randomizing when members are Pulsed, just as with a heart monitor, Pulse is meant to ask questions at random in every cadence to give you a constant and truthful monitor of employee happiness, like a heart monitor.
Q: What happens if someone's manager, department, or other employee data changes after I've launched a pulse survey?
A: Lattice captures demographic info (manager, department, etc.) a couple of times: first, at the time of sending the Pulse, and second, at the time of response. The second data check overrides the first, so if someone's information changes, it will be accurately reflected in the participation and results analytics.
