Creating Staff Pulses

You will need to have Pulse Creation Permissions to access the features in this article. 

Creating a staff pulse follows the same basic steps as a student pulse, with a few variations. 

Selecting a Pulse Type

Keep in mind the "Create a Pulse" card on the launchpad defaults to creating a student pulse. For all pulse options (e.g. student, family, and staff) click on the Pulses link in the top navigation.

From the pulse list page click on the green +New Pulse button and select the type of pulse you would like to create from the drop-down list.

Creating a Staff Pulse

If you selected Staff pulse from the drop-down list you will see the same basic three steps required for all pulse types.

Step 1: Info

Step 2: Questions

Selecting questions from the question bank

Once you have added a question from the question bank, you can click on it to edit the question, and select from several options.

Custom Questions

The options for custom questions are the same as questions pulled from the question bank, except the question stem is not auto-generated. You will need to create your own question, determine the type, and response options. The example below is a custom "checkbox" question. Respondents can select multiple responses. Keep in mind custom questions are categorized as "Undefined" until you select or create a new dimension in which to categorize them.

Step 3: Schedule

To begin setting your schedule, you can click into the date in the "Starts" field, and select your preferred start date. We recommend keeping your pulse open at least 7 days to allow adequate time for participants to respond, however you can adjust the window to your preferences. You can also set the pulse to repeat from the drop-down menu.

After you have selected all of your schedule settings select "Create Schedule." If you have set the pulse to repeat you will be able to edit or delete any dates from this point. Be sure to select "Finish set up" to create your pulse, and save all of your settings!
