Go to your selected metric (CSAT, NPS or CES) > click surveys > and click trigger settings of your survey. Here you can edit sender name or edit the number of days after which the survey can be send to the same customer to protect them from being oversurveyed.

You can also change the number of hours after which the survey is sent to the customer. When you're done don't forget to save your changes.
