Once a Review cycle is in the Peer Selection phase, depending on the settings, employees and managers will have the ability to nominate peer reviews and approve those nominations.

Understanding the why behind the Peer Selection Warning Banner

We believe that employees who are writing five or more peer reviews, can experience review fatigue, as well as not give have enough time to give valuable feedback to all peers. Taking into account the importance of high quality feedback, we have enabled a warning banner that will help prevent review fatigue when it comes to peer reviews.

This banner will show up when the employee being selected as a potential peer reviewer has already been selected more than or the number that was set as the limit when setting up the Review Cycle. 

Note: This is a warning banner and doesn't actually prevent an individual from requesting or approving a highly nominated peer review as peer reviewer.

Setting the limit of Peer Nominations

When creating a review cycle, an admin will be able to set this limit under the Review Settings, in the advance options, as shown below.

An admin can also edit the peer selection limit in an active review cycle.

Note: If there is not set limit for a review cycle, the banner will display when an employee has been nominated as a peer reviewer five or more times.

When and where the Peer Selection Warning Banner will appear

This banner will show up when an a selected peer reviewer has reached the limit of peer nominations. This can show up in three places: 

  1.  When employees are selecting their peer reviewers
  2.  When managers are approving and selecting peer nominations
  3.  When admins are overriding peer nominations

When employees are selecting their peer reviewers

If an employee nominates a peer that has already been nominated the set or more than the limit of peer nominations, the employee will see the following banner as they select that highly nominated peer reviewer.

When managers are approving and selecting peer nominations

If a manager is approving peer selections for a direct report who selected a highly nominated peer reviewer or if the manager is overriding peers nominations and they chose a highly nominated peer reviewer, the manager will see the following banner as they look to approve and override peer nominations. 

When admins are overriding peer nominations

If an admin is overriding peer nominations, and they chose a peer reviewer that is highly nominate, they will see the banner appear.
