Trend over time

If you have asked the same questions on multiple surveys, we will automatically form those into question and factor trends, as shown in the image below.

The Trend chart is filterable, and is available on both overall and shared reports.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I apply filters to Trend?

Yes! Right now you can only apply one filter at a time, but soon you'll be able to apply multiple filters at once, to see trends for sub-groups within your organization.

Which survey types have Trend enabled?

Snapshot surveys – for example, Engagement, Manager Effectiveness and Team Effectiveness surveys – may all show trends where they are available.

Why do some questions and factors in a survey have Trends, but others do not?

We apply two methods to create trend lines: firstly, we automatically match identical questions (so, questions that are character-for-character the same), and secondly, we can also manually match questions that are the same in meaning. If you're not seeing a trend where you expect to see one, let know which questions and surveys you think are missing, and we may be able to add that detail.

My trend line contains surveys that shouldn't be trended – how can I remove them?

In some cases, our trend chart will pick up surveys that have matching questions but shouldn't be included in your trend (test surveys are common culprits!). If you see this in any of your reports, send an email to with the names of any surveys that shouldn't be included in your trend, and one of our team will get you set up.

Soon, you'll be able to configure this for yourself.
