Managing your employee happiness survey settings | HR Web Platform


Within your organisation, it is important to have engaged and productive employees, as they are more likely to produce better work and contribute positively to your company culture. An employee happiness survey can help in this regard, by enabling you to measure your employee engagement, and give you the data on how to improve this metric within your organisation.

The Happiness Survey Settings feature allows you to customise when the platform sends out your happiness surveys, the frequency of the survey, and how long it remains visible to your employees. You can also see an example image of the survey your employees will see and be completing.


HR Plan:   Standard   Premium   Platinum
  User Access:   Employee         Manager         Admin      

  This is the default access level per user and whether they have  view,  edit and  delete access, excluding any changes made via our Custom Security feature.


The below premise will walk you through how to edit your happiness survey settings.

Edit your happiness survey settings
  1. Click the   Settings menu.
  2. Click the Employee Engagement submenu.
  3. Set the Do you want to send this survey out to your employees toggle switch to the desired position.
  4. Complete the following time designation fields:


    The time designation fields are only available for users on our premium and platinum pricing tiers.

    • How often do you want this survey to be sent out to your employees?

      Helpful Hint

      There are four frequency durations you can choose from, these are:

      • Weekly: Survey will repeat every week from the initial survey date.
      • Fortnightly: Survey will repeat every two weeks from the initial survey date.
      • Monthly: Survey will repeat every four weeks from the initial survey date.
      • Quarterly: Survey will repeat every thirteen weeks from the initial survey date.

      For example, if you selected a monthly repeat and the initial survey date was the 15th of January 2020, the next survey will trigger four weeks later, on the 12th of February 2020 at 10am Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

      However, if you are re-activating the survey, it will trigger immediately. The HR platform also bases the frequency and duration on calendar days, not business days.

    • When do you want to send out the initial survey to your employees?
    • How long do you want this survey to be visible for?
  5. Click the Save button.

So you have now managed your happiness survey settings and you are now wondering what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • HR Platform: Employee Happiness Survey This feature allows you to report on your employees' happiness via a scale graph showing happiness as a score from one to ten and what comments your employees left.
  • HR Platform: My Employee Happiness This feature allows you to access a historical log of all the responses you made on your happiness survey and anonymously respond to any comments made by your HR administrator.
