How to set the anonymity threshold in Engagement Surveys.
When setting up your survey, you will be able to adjust the anonymity threshold. This threshold sets the minimum number of responders there needs to be in order to view the scores for a question or theme.
When adjusting this threshold, it is important to take the demographic makeup of your organization and the privacy of the participants into account. While setting a lower anonymity threshold (i.e. 3 or 4) may help you view data for smaller groups, it may make participants feel vulnerable and keep them from answering the survey honestly. However, if you are trying to view a team that only has 3 members, having a lower threshold will allow you to more easily view their team data. Surveys in Lattice default the anonymity threshold to 5.
To adjust this threshold, follow these steps:
- When creating the survey, click on Settings on the left.
- Under Anonymity Threshold click on the drop-down arrow.
- From the drop-down, choose the minimum number of users required in a group before scores/comments are shown. You can choose a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10.
Note: You can edit the threshold at any point - even while the survey is active or after it has ended.
