09.11.2020 - Honestly "Engage Everyone"

Honestly offers several opportunities to participate in different surveys. Now we also offer employees without an e-mail address the possibility to participate in surveys using individual, but anonymized codes or information. 

Find out in the main article how you can survey all employees using QR code links.


09.11.2020 - Internal Benchmarks

Generally, it can make sense to compare employees not only on a company level but also in a more granular way, for example on a location level.

For this purpose, a new chart setting for heatmap and score charts is now available, allowing users to specify the internal comparison benchmark when configuring the chart. This is especially useful for accounts with many different users.

09.11.2020 - Honestly's Anonymity

Maintaining the anonymity of the participating employees is essential to allow open feedback.

Restrictions in the filter method and function, ensure that anonymity is maintained even with many and detailed filters.

The anonymity limit is ensured by the functionality of the evaluation software, especially by the filters, and is not done manually. The anonymity limit for the evaluation is five answers per question and can only be viewed from this value.

31.07.2020 Auto Import of Your Employee Data Field using CSV on SFTP now has a Health Check in place.


You have 3000 employees in your system. The threshold of your import is set to 10% when you are uploading a CSV with 1300 lines. As 1300 is smaller than 2700 (3000 - 10%), the import is not processed. Instead, an E-mail is sent to all admins, to support@ and to product@honestly.com.
You can change the file and reupload a new one with 3200 employees. This is normally triggered, as it is less than 10% larger than the previous.

Once the upload is not within your range, you will receive the following E-mail:

"Dear Honestly Customer,
you are receiving this E-mail because you are an Admin of (accountname's) Honestly-System.
We hereby inform you, that the most recent import of the new employee base was not processed, as it failed the internal validation for integrity.
Your account right now holds (number employees) employees and the most recent file included number lines entries. This is an unexpectedly high difference which is why we stopped the import from processing.

Please consult internally about this issue. If the file was correct from your side, please connect with your customer success agent to change the threshold of processing.
If the file was incorrect from your side, you can fix the issue and reupload. The automatic import Is still active and will process as normal.

You will receive this E-mail again if the error persists.

The Honestly Team"
