As an admin, you can choose what information is shared with employees after a performance review. These settings are located on the "Deliverables" page when creating a review cycle. Please note that the options available on the deliverables page may differ based upon your other review settings.

Note: no reviews are shared until a manager or admin releases the review packet to the reviewee. Regardless of what option you select as deliverables, a manager or admin will still need to release the packet. The admin is simply selecting what is seen by the reviewee after the cycle has ended and the packet is shared.

Deliverables Overview

Before making your selections, know that reviewees will always have access to their self review and the manager's summary. Reviewees will never see answers to private questions.

You can then choose different visibility settings for the Manager's downward review about their direct reports, Upward reviews from direct reports about their manager, Peer reviews, Scored Attributes, and Weighted Scores.

Manager's review and summary

For Manager reviews, the deliverables settings options include: 

  • Share both the manager's review and their summary of reviews written about their direct reports: Both the templated review itself and a summary (if you've chosen for managers to write a summary) will be shared with the direct report.
  • Only share the manager's summary of reviews written about their direct reports: Only the manager's summary will be shared with the direct report.
  • Only share the manager's reviews written about their direct reports: Only the review itself will be shared with the direct report.

Peer Reviews

For Peer reviews, the deliverable setting options include: 

  • Share all feedback with peer reviewers' names attached: All peer feedback with names attached will be shared with the reviewee.
  • Share all feedback, but with peers' comments anonymized: All peer feedback will be shared, but will not have a name associated with it.
  • Only share feedback with reviewee's manager: The peer feedback only goes to the employee's manager. Managers will be able to see the names of the reviewers. Note: If you use this setting, we recommended that you include summary remarks in the review cycle. Managers can then use the summary to recap and share elements of the peer feedback with their direct reports in their own words.
  • Only share feedback with reviewee's managers with reviewers' comments anonymized: Peer feedback will only be shared with the reviewee's manager and will not have names associated with it. If this option is chosen as a Deliverable setting, only Admins will have the ability to see the peer reviewers' names.

Upward Reviews

For upward reviews, Deliverable setting options include:

  • Share all feedback with reviewers' names attached: All feedback with names attached will be shared with the reviewee.
  • Share all feedback, but with direct reports' comments anonymized: All upward feedback will be shared, but will not have a name associated with it.
  • Only share feedback with reviewee's manager: Upward feedback only goes to the employee's manager. Managers will be able to see the names of the reviewers. Note: If you use this setting, we recommended that you include summary remarks in the review cycle. Managers can then use the summary to synthesize and share elements of the downward feedback with their direct reports in their own words.
  • Only share feedback with reviewee's managers with reviewers' comments anonymized: Upward feedback will only be shared with the reviewee's manager, and will not have names associated with it. If this option is chosen as a Deliverable setting, only Admins will have the ability to see the peer reviewers' names.

Private Question Warning

Private questions in reviews are only shared with the reviewee's manager and admins. Private questions will be hidden from reviewees regardless of the chosen deliverables settings. If a template in the review cycle has private questions, you'll see a yellow (if some questions are private) or red (if all questions are private) banner highlighting that fact in the deliverables settings for that review direction.

Control

This section is where you determine if managers can end the review cycle early for their direct reports and share the review packet. Learn more here!

  • No, only admins can do this: Only admins can end the review cycle and allow managers to share review packets.
  • Yes, managers can end the review cycle for their direct reports: Managers can end the review cycle for each of their direct reports individually and share their packets even if the review cycle is still active.

Scored Attributes

At the top of the scored attributes section, you can turn the toggle off if you do not want to share any score attributes. If you want to share some but not other, simply turn off the toggles next to the attributes that you do not want reviewees to see.

Weighted Scores

At the top of the weighted scores section, you can turn the toggle off if you do not want to share the score with the reviewee. If you choose to share the score, there is a box where you can add an optional description. We suggest putting a description of how the score is calculated in this box.
