Overview

People who are to be included in an attributed survey done over a specific timeframe (snapshot survey) can be managed on the Participants page. For Onboard and Exit Surveys, these are kept open for a long time and are continuous, so a different process is followed, see Issuing and Exit or Onboard Survey to an Individual.

All people to be included must first be loaded into Culture Amp as a user, see Import Users. By default, no-one is included in a survey, so selecting the survey participants is required before a survey can be launched.

Adding people after a survey has launched is also possible. You cannot de-select people from the survey's participants page once the survey has launched, so think carefully about who should be included. You could consider removing people like the President or CEO, any new hires, any interns or contractors, any people who have indicated they are leaving, people away on leave, etc.

  1. Click the Edit Survey button for a specific survey on your Surveys page
