First go to the "Surveys" section. Then click on the "Edit" button to the right of your Pulse survey:

An editing window will appear where you can set various things. This section is divided into:

  • Schedule
  • Questions
  • Recipients

In the "Schedule" section, you can decide:

  • if your Pulse survey should be weekly or monthly
  • how many questions should be asked in each cycle (anything between 6 and 12 is possible)
  • when the survey should take place (anything between Monday and Sunday for the weekly Pulse and day 1 to day 28 for the monthly Pulse is possible).

The system will show you your current settings in the "General Settings" box on the right.

Remember to save these settings!
