Customizing the survey email can be helpful in communicating how you will use the survey feedback, links to any policies, who will have access to see survey data, and more. Customizing the survey email doesn't trigger email sendout.
Email content generates at the send-out. If you customize email settings during a live survey round, employees who haven't yet received their survey notification will receive the updated version when the email sendout time comes.
It's only possible to customize the email that's the first survey notification in the survey round. Reactivation and reminder emails are non-customizeable.
Setting a recognizable survey sender can help drive participation. In the absence of a survey sender, Peakon sets the sender as the first person from the administrators list.
The survey sender always displays as Peakon in reminder emails, to reiterate that it's an automated reminder from the product, not the person or team behind the survey sender.
If you're using the name of a senior leader (Example: the CEO), align with your IT department to ensure that Peakon emails bypass any potential spam filters blocking mass emails.
