Your Team Sentiment over Time can be a wonderful resource for leaders to get a sense of a team's health based on the way they are expressing themselves during retrospective meetings. As this is an anonymized view of the sentiment analysis, it's also non-intrusive for team members who want to provide honest feedback without their managers getting access to it.
The Sentiment over Time chart has 5 key elements:
The total number of cards (feedback) that are being analyzed for the time period. Depending on the number of teams being analyzed and the length of the period, this number can vary between the 10s or 100s
The total number of cards where positive terms have been tracked (ex. happy, great, fantastic, wonderful, excellent etc.)
The total number of cards where negative terms have been tracked (ex. angry, bad, sucks, loss etc.)
The total number of cards where neutral terms have been tracked
Each card of feedback is sorted into each of these buckets and cannot be sorted in two or more categories at once.
This analysis is tracked on a line graph where the x-axis is time, based on the timestamp of each of the cards, and the y-axis is the % of positive, negative or neutral terms for this day.
Based on this line graph, leaders can see how sentiment inside the team changes over time at a glance.
Track sentiment by team or for all teams; for a custom period or for a quarter using the toggles at the top of the Team Pulse dashboard.
