External reviewers can serve as reviewers if they are added to a peer group. However, the external reviewers have certain limitations.
When an external user is assigned a review task, they are sent an email that contains a link to the performance review task. This link is the only way in which an external user can access the review task because they do not have any login credentials and there is no validation. When viewing the review task, all top level navigation and settings functionality is removed.
External reviewers cannot:
- Decline a review
- Reopen steps
- Make a public comment on a review (they are able to make private comments)
- Assign development actions
- Serve as reviewer selectors
- Complete goal planning sections
- Add co-planners
- Edit custom fields
