Getting started with Friday Pulse

To get set up for success with Friday Pulse choose your settings carefully and take time to communicate with employees about using the platform.


Set-up generally takes two weeks, but it can be anything from a couple of days to a month, depending on the size of your organization and the complexity of choices you make from the options available.

Communication is key

Take time to think about and plan your communications to users about how to use Friday Pulse so that users and teams can set up time to discuss results.

Getting your user list right

When configuring your user list, there are two things to keep in mind – who people will be discussing their results with each week, and what groups you need to be able to see results for. Learn more here
