Sharing survey results and reports

Once your survey results are ready to share, you can start thinking about rolling them out to various people within the organization by using the Report Sharing function.


If you like being ahead of the curve you can even begin setting up access to reports before the survey launches so that managers can monitor and encourage greater participation from their teams once the survey goes live.

TIP: When you set up report access, people can sign in and see data immediately, so make sure you are ready for them to take a look.

Report Options

  • Participation: Users will only have access to the Participation report - great for group managers that are responsible for encouraging people to respond to the survey
  • Standard: Users will have access to Participation, Insights and Questions reports - great for executives, and managers to get the information that they need without drowning in too much information
  • Advanced: Users will additionally have access to all the reports including the Heatmap and Custom reports - great for the CEO + HR + People & Culture teams to slice and dice the data
  • Comments (optional): User will additionally see comments displayed within the other reports, as well as view the Comments report 

How to share reports

  1. Under the Sharing page, click Create Report to add a new report
  2. Decide if you want this report to be an All Results report (whole of company) or a report that is limited to a Demographic (people will only see their Department, for example)
  3. Give your report a name and a description for ease of reference
  4. Decide if you want people with access to this report to have the ability to filter the results further by other demographics or classifications (exit and onboard surveys only), if so, select all the filters that you want them to use
  5. Decide if you want them to have access to the Comments report
  6. Click Create Report to save
  7. Back on the Sharing page, click the arrow to expand, or click anywhere on the report name to expand that section
  8. For any values in bold, click the Assign Viewers icon on the far right
  9. Start assigning the users that you would like to have access to that report by typing a part of their name in to locate them in the list
  10. Click Save
  11. You can preview the reports by clicking the View (eye) icon to get an idea of the reports and filters that are included

Below you'll see options for how to notify viewers of their new report access.  

The labels used on the report sharing page are:

  • Unreportable means that group will always be too small to be able to share reports based on their data, as their group size is less than the Reporting Group Minimum set for the survey.
  • Not Yet Reportable is only used for surveys that are still open to indicate that not enough responses have been received to date
  • Insufficient Responses is only used for closed surveys to indicate that not enough responses were received

Notifying viewers of access

There are two ways to notify individuals that they have access to a report:

  • Use the Culture Amp platform to send notifications to individuals
  • Send an email outside of the platform 

Notifying viewers through the Culture Amp platform

After you've added viewers to a report:

  1. Click Notify Viewers 
  2. In the window, click Notify All Viewers to send an email to everyone who is a viewer of a report (even if they've been previously emailed) or click Notify New Viewers to send an email to only those viewers who have been added since you last sent a notification

An email will be sent to the report viewers, notifying them that they now have access to the report. The email will include a link to the report. If the individual has never logged into the platform, and your company doesn't currently use Single Sign On, the email will also provide a link for creating a password to access the platform. 

If the report viewer has not opened the report a week after receiving the notification, a second email will be sent to remind them of the report.

NOTE: Administrators cannot modify the default text of the email. The email text will include your account and survey name.


Notifying viewers outside the Culture Amp platform

If notifying viewers in bulk with your own email, we recommend:

  • Asking viewers to set a password if they had not previously signed in to Culture Amp
  • Asking viewers to sign in to our platform to view their reports
  • Sharing any important overall themes and instructions

Tips and tricks

Set up your managers up with the Participation report and limit their view to this report while the survey is still live - this can help to avoid them focusing on results that aren't stable yet. Once the survey is closed and you're ready to release results, use the Edit Report link, and change it from a Participation report to Standard report so that you don't have to re-do the access again.

NOTE: People with whom you've shared reports will need to log into Culture Amp to view them. If you have Single Sign On, logging in is done differently.
