Create and manage baseline

Admins can create and manage a baseline, which is used to compare the responses and derive the heat map.

A baseline is the established standard used for comparing engagement survey responses. Admins can set scores for a baseline to compare the responses and measure the effectiveness of employee engagement initiatives.

There are two types of baselines.

  • Cycle period baseline: It is also called This Survey It represents each question with an associated baseline marked by a favorable score. It is generated automatically based on responses to a particular question from previous assignments throughout the cycle period.
  • Custom baseline: You can create a baseline and customize it as required to compare the responses.
