Filtering & Comparing

At the top of each page, you will find selectors that allow you to define what demographic, benchmarks and populations you can use to view and compare your data. These options will vary depending on which page you are viewing: Dashboard, Learn, Segment or Listen.

Before you begin...

  • Understanding how to use these selectors will help you explore your results in a meaningful way. Watch the video overview for a quick tutorial.

Timeframe Selector

The Timeframe selector appears on all of the pages and allows you to select the focal timeframe and if applicable, the trend timeframe.

  • Selecting a Time Frame and a Trend To will allow you to see how you are trending over time.
  • You may have all or just some of the selection options shown below:
    • Year: Compare your results from one year to another. This is the most common selection option.
    • Month: If your company does monthly pulsing, this option would be available and allow you to select specific months of the year.
    • Quarter: If your company does quarterly pulsing, this option will allow you to compare quarters: Q1, Q2, Q3 or Q4.
    • Rolling X: If you have Monthly or Quarterly options available, this will allow you to select a specific number of months that you can define such as view the last 2 months.

To change timeframe of your results:

  1. Click on the Calendar icon.
  2. Select the 'Select Time Frame' Type (year, month, quarter or rolling X)
    • In most cases Year will be your only selection unless your company participates in monthly or quarterly pulsing. This is the time frame that the 'Trend To' time frame will compare against everywhere.
  3. Select the Survey 
  4. Select the 'Trend to' Type
  5. Select the Survey
  6. Click Apply
    • When using the Time frame selector, any selections made in other filtering tools will be cleared out. It is advised that you select the desired Time Frame before making any other filtering selections

Understanding Trend

Trend to is the historical survey, charts will display how the scores are trending compared to the group chosen in the Filter Selector tool. 

Trend Population: It can be confusing to understand what you're looking at when viewing trend in the Dashboard, Learn or Segment. Its important to understand that the organization structure (or population) in the trend is the same population selected in the Time Frame sector.

Chart Options - Filtering the Group

Use the Filter selector to change the data to focus on a different group. The filter options available to you are determined by your administrator, you may see other options or limited options that are different than the examples below.

  • 'What Group Would You Like to Look At?' Selector: Select the organization you want to view the results for.
  • 'Would You like To Filter Your Group? section in the dropdown
    • By Demographics: The list of demographics available are determined by your administrator so in all cases what you see here may be different that what others see.
    • By Hierarchy: This is your organization, the levels of hierarchy that you have access to are determined by your administrator. In some cases you may see the Overall organization and only your organization with no other groups. This will allow you to compare your group scores against the overall company scores. Depending on your access, you may have the ability to view the entire organization hierarchy.
    • By Saved Filter Groups: This will appear once you have saved a filter group. Access your saved filter groups using this option.
