Visibility

The Visibility section enables administrators to configure which visibility options are available and which visibility options are selected by default. Visibility options can be configured for feedback requests and for unsolicited feedback.

Visibility - Unsolicited Feedback

The Unsolicited Feedback section enables administrators to configure which visibility options are available and which are selected by default for unsolicited feedback. Unsolicited feedback refers to feedback in which a user voluntarily provides feedback, awards a badge, or comments on an existing feedback item on another user's Feedback page. This type of feedback is not prompted by a feedback request. The following options are available:

  • Included - Select this option to make the corresponding visibility option available to users when selecting the visibility settings for their unsolicited feedback.
  • Selected By Default - Select this option to make the corresponding visibility option selected by default for users when selecting the visibility settings for their unsolicited feedback. This option can only be selected if the Included option is also selected for the visibility option.

The following visibility options are available:

  • Feedback Recipient - This refers to the user who is receiving any type of feedback.
  • Managers - This option includes all direct and indirect managers for the feedback recipient.
  • Everyone - This refers to anyone who views the recipient's Feedback page. If the Selected By Default option is selected for this visibility option, then the Selected By Default option is automatically unselected and disabled for all other visibility options.

Visibility - Feedback Requests

The Feedback Requests section enables administrators to configure which visibility options are available and which are selected by default for feedback requests. Feedback requests refers to feedback that is provided when a user requests feedback from others, including general requests for feedback or requests for feedback on a specific goal. The following options are available:

  • Included - Select this option to make the corresponding visibility option available to users when selecting the visibility settings for their feedback request.
  • Selected By Default - Select this option to make the corresponding visibility option selected by default for users when selecting the visibility settings for their feedback request. This option can only be selected if the Included option is also selected for the visibility option.

The following visibility options are available:

  • Feedback Recipient - This refers to the user who is receiving any type of feedback.
  • Managers - This option includes all direct and indirect managers for the feedback recipient.
  • Everyone - This refers to anyone who views the recipient's Feedback page. If the Selected By Default option is selected for this visibility option, then the Selected By Default option is automatically unselected and disabled for all other visibility options.
  • Request Recipients - This refers to all users who are included in the request for feedback.

Ratings Display

Feedback ratings can be displayed as a numeric value, as text, or both. This section enables administrators to select how ratings are displayed to users who are providing and receiving feedback.

Overall Rating Scale

This section enables administrators to view and modify the rating scale that is used for feedback questions that use a rating response. The rating scale is displayed as it is currently configured. If the administrator modifies the rating scale, then this section reflects the modifications.

To edit the overall rating scale for feedback requests, click the Edit icon next to the section heading. See Feedback Preferences - Edit Rating Scale.

Overwrite Settings

Choose whether to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you choose to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings will be updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.

A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.

An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.
