What is a Snapshot?
Snapshots are two question mini-surveys that ask the participant, their manager, and their Support Team about their progress on their goal.
Who gets invited to respond to a Snapshot and why?
When participants identify Support Team Members on the "Manage Support Team" page, they can check the checkbox in the Snapshot column for anyone they would like to participate in their Snapshot.
When do Snapshots happen?
Snapshots are automatically sent 45 days, 3, 6 and 12 months after the participant confirms their goal.
How do I initiate a Snapshot?
Snapshots happen automatically 45 days, 3, 6 and 12 months after the participant confirms their goal. You can work with the participant to make sure that on the "Manage Support Team" page, they have identified who should participate.
What questions does a Snapshot ask?
The first question identifies the participant's goal and asks the rater to rate the participant's progress on the goal. The second question is an open-ended question that provides opportunity for the rater to comment on the participant's progress.
Are the responses anonymous?
The participant's manager's ratings will be identified separately in the report. All other feedback is combined.
Why does the participant identify their manager?
Snapshot reports display the participant's manager's responses separately from all other answers in the report.

The Snapshot invitations and reminders cannot be customized. However, you can send out Snapshot reminders on the "In Progress" tab on the "Snapshot Schedule" page.
Progress And Reports
Why are the participant results displayed on 4 different tabs under the Results page?
Sprezie records results that help you answer 3 very important questions: What are your participants' goals? How long are participants focusing on making progress towards their goals? If participants are not making progress on their goals, why? The first tab, "Do Differently", answers the first question as it identifies participants and their goals. The second tab, "For How Long", answers the second question as it indicates participants' response rates to Sprezie calls and texts over time. The third tab, "If Not Why Not", answers the third question as it lists the reasons participants have given for lacking weekly progress. The fourth tab shows a visual representation of Snapshot Survey results that records how participants and their friends, family, co-workers, and managers view their progress.
How do I listen to messages left by participants after indicating no weekly progress on their goal during a Sprezie call/text?
When a participant indicates no progress in response to a Sprezie call/text, the participant has the option to leave a message explaining the reason their progress has been lacking. If they leave a message, there will be an entry on the "If Not Why Not" tab of the "Progress" page showing the date of the message. Reviewing these messages will help you and your participants understand how to overcome the barriers that are preventing progress.
Why does it matter how many calls/texts participants answer?
Independent studies have found that if participants answer 50% or more of their calls/texts, you are twice as likely to succeed. In fact, research found that once participants answer 50% of their Sprezie calls/texts your chances of success increase with each additional response.
How do I change the dates in the report so I can look at more data?
Each tab under the "Progress" page, has filters available. Please click "Filter" on the right of the screen to show results for specific participants, programs, categories, goals, or dates. Please note filters do not transfer from tab to tab. Each tab has its own filters.
