Creating A Survey (Step 1): Questions

Learn how to set up questions for your survey.

Step 1: Questions

EngageRocket provides 3 questionnaire templates with research-backed questions curated specially by our people science team that we recommend to customers that would be able to give a good indication of employee engagement and promote active listening. We encourage you to use our standard list of questions if you have yet to do a comprehensive research process validating your questions to measure engagement.

Custom Questions and Drivers

You will have full flexibility to create new Custom Drivers by clicking on "Create new driver" and/or adding new questions under an existing driver or the newly created driver. Here is a quick guideline on how to create or add your own question:

  • Navigate to the Questions page and scroll down to find the 'Create Driver' button.
  • Enter the Driver Name and click 'Save.'
  • Click the 'Add Question' button.
  • Input the desired questions.
  • Select the question type (Scale, open-ended, etc.). Please note that specifically for the scale type will adhere to your survey settings.
  • Click 'Save' to finalize.

Re-ordering Questions and Drivers

Questions and drivers can be re-ordered according to your preference. Click on reorder drivers or reorder questions. Then, drag and drop the drivers or questions according to your preference. Click on finish when you are done.

Visibility Settings

You can set up the visibility settings for your Questionnaire and choose whether the following questions will be visible to “All survey recipients” or “Selected survey recipients”. This option allows one to show questions to employees that match their attributes, eg business units, countries, tenure, department, gender, or any other custom attribute. 

For instance, by choosing “Selected survey recipients” for specific driver questions, you can decide which recipients can view these particular questions (i.e. selecting by Department). Thus, you can dive deep into the selected attribute and there will be no visibility for this question driver to other departments.
