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.

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.
