Cultivating ownership and transparency with sharing permissions

Introducing result sharing permissions 

For important company-wide results for a survey, there's a good chance that other people in your company will need access to it, too. Some examples would be your supervisor, investors, department head, or your cross-functional project lead. We strive to continuously foster the same culture of openness and transparency that Slack is ubiquitous with – which is what Polly aims to do by increasing the ability to share out important results to your stakeholders.

Compare relationships across multiple variables with crosstabs

Anytime that you need to do a side-by-side comparison of how different groups of respondents answer your survey questions, cross tabulations are an extremely handy analysis tool that compares the relationship between two questions within a survey. Cross-tabulations essentially provide a different view of your survey results that help to understand the differences (and/or similarities) in responses from separate groups of people.

Slice and dice your data with demographic segmentation

Segmenting your results can be tremendously useful in situations where you want to use population demographics to compare results across different attributes such as: gender, age, departments, office location, salary level, seniority at company, and more.

Visualize your data with chart types and trend lines

Introducing historical trends and charts

Measuring trends over time is a crucial part of running any recurring poll or survey – it helps to uncover insights into the effectiveness of your initiative, or the sentiments of your team over time, that you wouldn't be able to see from a single view. It also eliminates the time spent actually creating these charts yourself, when they're readily available within your Polly web app dashboard. Plus, we think the charts and trend lines are visually appealing :) along with making your data more easily digestible, of course.

Your data just got richer with CSV exports

Introducing data export capabilities 

When you're running a large employee engagement survey with an audience of several hundred people with a series of questions you need to analyze, it becomes cumbersome to have to sift through each of the questions and manually enter them into an Excel spreadsheet in order to analyze your results. As teams started moving some of their important survey workflows into Slack with Polly, there suddenly became a large need to be able to export poll or survey data for additional data manipulation or advanced analysis, depending on the team's organizational need.

The Best Way to Discuss and Share Employee Survey Results

Using surveys to solicit employee feedback has long been a part of sound management practice, but the way surveys are conducted has changed over time as workplace communication and the state of survey technology have changed.
