What is the Recurrence for Survey Assignments?

The recurrence feature streamlines the process of regularly sharing the same survey, enabling consistent data collection over an extended period. Participants engaging in recurring surveys respond to a standardized set of questions repeatedly. Over time, their evolving responses to these questions provide management with valuable insights and patterns. Recurring surveys are versatile and suitable for both internal surveys within a corporation and open-ended surveys seeking descriptive responses.

Setting up a recurrence is a straightforward way to schedule the same survey for a consistent group, whether daily, weekly, quarterly, or on specific days, like the first Monday of each month. By configuring recurrence surveys just once, you ensure automated surveys are dispatched punctually, proving far more efficient than manual distribution and collection each time.

For seamless business operations and insightful data analysis, utilizing recurring surveys with the same questionnaire or template is a strategic and beneficial approach, particularly when comparing participants’ responses to the same question at different points in time.
