What to expect when you set managers to submit their reviews last during a Review Cycle.
When setting up your Review Cycle, you have the option for managers to submit their reviews only after all other reviews have been submitted. This means that they cannot submit their review until all other reviews for their direct reports have been submitted. This can be a self-review for their direct report, peer reviews for their direct report, and/or upward feedback for their direct report.
During the Review Cycle, an admin can enable this setting by navigating to the Review Cycle and clicking on the Review settings section (shown below). The option can be found beneath Ordering.
What to Expect as a Manager
Here is what your managers can expect:
- When you launch reviews, managers will be notified to participate in the review only if they have other reviews to perform (such as a self-review, peer reviews, or upward feedback).
- When managers log into Lattice to perform those other reviews, they will see the option to complete their manager review but will not have the ability to submit the review yet.
- Once all the reviews have been submitted for their direct reports, the manager will be notified to complete their manager review.
If you'd like to reminder managers to complete their reviews for their direct reports, please refer to this article.
If you find that your managers are being delayed in the Review Cycle process because the reviews for their direct reports have not been submitted, you can always unlock manager reviews.
