Peer Reviewer Nomination options
Choose from of these options to determine who can nominate peer reviewers:

Direct reports will not have visibility into the peers that were nominated until the review packet with peer reviews is shared, if given visibility.

Direct reports will not have visibility into the final approved peers until the review packet with peer reviews is shared, if given visibility.
Select any desired options in the Advanced Settings:
- Limit number of peer nominations reviewees can request: Limit the number of peer reviewers that managers or reviewees can choose. Learn more about restricting peer nominations in Peer Selection Limits Within a Review Cycle.
- Allow reviewers to decline peer nominations: Allow employees to decline nominations if they feel they do not have enough context or have not worked closely with the reviewee. Learn more about enabling employees to decline reviews in Enabling Reviewers to Decline Peer Reviews in Review Cycles.
- Share the reviewee's self review with their reviewers: Allow peer reviewers to view the submitted self review for their reviewee to help provide additional context for their review responses.
