An overview of the Experience page

The Experience page is where you can drill down into your experience and operational data, find actionable insights, and identify improvement areas. 

The page can be broken down into four main sections: 

  1. Top-level selections
  2. Happiness and Lost time graphs 
  3. Filters
  4. Factors

Please note that if you click on a specific shortcut on your Dashboard, you will be taken to the Experience page showing the data based on the filters saved for that shortcut. 


1 Top-level selections

Use these selections to do a top-level of filtering of the data you want to analyze.

  • Measurement Area dropdown menu: Select the measurement area you want to view with the dropdown to the left of the filter bar. For most users who are measuring Services with Ticket-based surveys, this drop-down will show "Services" by default.

    If you have Proactive surveys in use (e.g. Enterprise Applications, Laptops and Computers, etc), you can select the corresponding tabs to view data from those areas. Select "Service Portal" if you want to see data from your Portal Experience surveys.

  • The Filter / Search bar allows you to manually search for filters. Any filters you select on the Experience page will also be reflected here. 

  • Create a Shortcut with your selected filters by clicking the icon to the right of the search bar, so that you can easily return to your pre-filtered data in one click. Once saved, your Shortcuts can be accessed both from the Dashboard and from the Measurement Area dropdown menu.

Reports_Shortcut menu

  • Toggle between Happiness or Lost time to look at your data from either perspective. 
  • Toggle between Incidents and Requests if you're looking at Services data: Switch between "Incident" and "Request" with the buttons at the top. Your selection will be highlighted in pink. Note: "Incident" is selected by default. 

    To see Happiness and Lost Time across both Incidents and Requests, simply deselect both buttons such that they are white in color. 

  • Select the time period you want to view data from with the dropdown on the right. You can use pre-defined periods like Last 30 days and Last 6 months, or choose a custom date range. 
  • Choose between comparing your data with Target, Baseline, or Previous period. All data on the page will be colored red or green depending on whether Happiness / Lost Time is better or worse than the Target or Organization Baseline, whichever you select. If you choose Previous period, change since the previous equivalent time period will be shown next to the data for the current time period.

    Watch this demo to learn more comparing to Baseline or Previous period.

  • Download a CSV copy of your filtered data via the Feedback page (previously also accessible via the Experience page). Make sure you select all the filters you need to make the download meaningful to you. 


2 Happiness and Lost time graph

When switching between Happiness or Lost time you will see the graphs for each one of them. The title of the graph will summarize, depending on your choice between Happiness and Lost time:

  1. Happiness or Lost time average for the filters and time period selected
  2. Total number of feedbacks received for the filters and  time period selected

Note that the number of responses received for Happiness and Lost time can vary. This is because some employees do not answer the survey question which asks them to estimate their lost work time.

Sometimes the average Happiness or Lost time (in the graph title) is different from the daily values shown when hovering on the graph. This is because the daily values are calculated as weighted rolling averages from the previous seven days. It allows us to "smooth out" the graph to avoid big dips and spikes for when response volume suddenly and significantly changes. Read more here
