Workforce Insights - Use Pulses

Pulses allow you to create notifications from Workforce Insights to notify you of any changes in the data. You can decide what changes you want to be notified about.

Creating a Pulse

You can add a Pulse by hovering over the widget for which you want to add a Pulse, clicking on the icon with three dots, and then "Add to Pulse".


From the following settings, you can define when you will be alerted. The options include:

  • Threshold: you will be notified when the number in the widget hits a threshold that you set. For example, if you wanted to be notified when the Engagement meter for your company Haiilo domain drops to less than 50%, you could set the 'smaller than' value to 0.50.
  • Automatic: the data in the widget will be monitored and you will be notified automatically of any anomalies, i.e. the value drops or rises drastically.
  • Always: you are notified every time there is a change in the value, no matter how small or large the change is. 


You can also use the Advanced option to add Filters to the Pulse.

Editing Pulses

After you have set up a Pulse, you can always edit your Pulses by navigating to the Pulse tab. Here you can edit or delete an existing Pulse by clicking the three small lines in the right-hand corner.

You are also able to stop receiving notifications for a Pulse temporarily by unselecting Receive Notifications or choosing Turn Off. The Pulse will remain in your Pulse section until you Delete it or enable Notifications again.

The Pulse section is always individual, meaning only the person who sets up the Pulse will receive the notifications. Each Admin has to set up their own Pulses.
