How do I create and launch a Pulse Check?
To create a Pulse Check, click Pulse in the top navigation of AgilityHealth®. Your options may look different, depending on your user type.
Once you are in the Pulse section, you may see a blank screen. This is because the team that is selected in the left navigation probably does not have any Pulse Check assessments. That team could be an Enterprise Team or a Multi-Team, which are not allowed to have Pulse Check assessments. To create a Pulse Check, click the blue Add Assessment button in the upper right hand corner.
Reminder - a team must have completed a team level assessment previously, in order to be included in a Pulse Check. If the Add Assessment button is greyed out, the team is not eligible for a Pulse Check.
Create Pulse Check
The create assessment screen is where you will name your Pulse Check (remember to make it unique!) and also pick the assessment type you wish to pick questions from, for example, TeamHealth 3.0.
After you have selected the assessment type, a list of dimensions, sub-dimensions and competencies will appear below. Use the carrots to expand and collapse the sections. Check the box for each section of questions you wish to include in your Pulse Check.
Once you have checked a box, the questions that pertain to that dimension, sub-dimension or competency will appear on the right side of the screen. The questions that appear will include all possible questions for that selection, regardless of work type or team member role.
After checking the boxes for the questions you wish to include, click Next.
On the Select Teams page, you will be able to select the teams you wish to receive this Pulse Check. If a team member is on more than one selected team, they will receive multiple emails inviting them to take each team's Pulse Check and will need to take the Pulse Check for each team. You cannot select which team members receive a Pulse Check, all team members will receive the Pulse Check. Stakeholders do not receive Pulse Checks.
The teams that will show in the list are only those you have permissions to create an assessment for and those that have previously taken a team assessment.
Once you have selected your teams, click Next.
Once your questions and teams are selected, you need to set the schedule for the date and time the Pulse Check emails will be sent and the assessment is open for responses, along with if and how often you want the Pulse Check to be repeated. You will also decide how long the assessment will be open for answers, which is known as the assessment period.
If a Pulse Check is created and set to repeat, each time a team takes that Pulse Check, the results for each Pulse Check will be displayed on the same timeline for the team. This allows you to see over time how the scores from questions for the same dimension of a radar assessment change over time.
If a Pulse Check is created from scratch for the same team each time the team needs the assessment, you will view the results from each Pulse Check individually. Results from different Pulse Checks do not roll up for a team.
If you choose for the Pulse Check to be repeated, you can choose an end date or a number of occurrences.
Once you have set the schedule for your Pulse Check, click Next.
