Why Pause or Remove Pulse Survey Questions?
Pausing Pulse Questions
You are no longer interested in gathering data on a question, but you still want to access the data. Admins can always view data on questions no longer actively being asked in Pulse Surveys by pausing particular questions.
Removing Pulse Questions
You are no longer interested in gathering or reviewing data on a Pulse question.
How to Remove or Pause Pulse Survey Questions
Step 1: Select "Change configuration" in your Pulse Survey settings.
Step 2: Select the ellipsis to the right of the question and select either "Pause" or "Remove."
Step 3: Select "Continue to cadence" to save your paused or removed questions before exiting.
Keep in mind, if you remove a question and then re-add it to a Pulse Survey, any previous data will return in the results section of Pulse.
When a question is paused, it will be gray out the Results page of your Pulse Survey.
