Engage: Settings

Contents

Introduction

When setting up your account in Engage, as a new organization you'll want to set up settings to mirror your company's name, branding, and other backend elements to create the desirable environment for you and your employees. This article will go further into detail on how you can set up various aspects of your account.

To go to Settings, click on the gear icon as shown below:

Company Settings

The first tab in Settings is "company settings". Here, you can enter your company info, and logo (in PNG format). This will help personalize the UI, as well as the email notifications that will be sent out to your users from Engage:

Additionally, you can set up your timezone, and business hours. This will determine when notifications get sent from your users, to ensure they aren't bombarded with emails/notifications at random hours:

If Saturday and Sunday isn't selected for business days, and a survey is launched on the weekend, then the survey will be sent at the following available business day enabled in the settings. 

App Settings

The majority if settings set up for surveys and data will be enabled on this tab:

The Anonymise data threshold is where you can set the max number of employees that survey participant threshold must meet before more granular data can be shown. If a survey doesn't not meet that number of participants, then certain reporting will remain blank or anonymous until that threshold is met.

Display company averages, when checked off, will provide survey reporting more percentage averages of user data within the survey reporting across the entire company. This option is helpful to provide more birdeye's views of survey responses within your company.

The benchmark areas is where you can enable/select specific benchmarks to compare your survey data against. More information on benchmarks can be found here.

To include an introductory text for your surveys, you can include the text here:

The default text for the answer choices will appear as shown above, but if you wish to change them to your liking, they can be changed there. You can select the likert scale range, from 2 to 7.

Action plans settings can be customized here:

When the "Send Action Plan digest emails" setting is checked, emails will go out on the desired cadence (that can be set in the options below it) to remind admin/manager users of action plans that need to be actioned upon. This option gives your users reminders and holds them accountable in order to ensure such action plans are accomplished on time. You can select the day and time (in your timezone) that will be set in the drop-down menus shown above.

Additionally, if you have Betterworks Core set up, you can change the terminology of OKRs to the customized ones you may have set up in the Admin settings for BW. 

Lastly, Action Plan settings allow you to create custom suggestions, or templates for your Action Plans:
