Feedback - Request for Goal

Users can map a feedback request to a specific goal. This enables users to solicit feedback that is directly related to a goal.

Note: When a goal is added to a feedback request, the request displays the details and progress of the goal as it existed at the moment the feedback request is posted. If the details of the goal are modified or if progress is updated after the request is posted, then these updates will not be reflected in the feedback request. This behavior is intended to allow feedback providers to see the goal details and progress at the time the feedback was requested.

To request feedback, click the Feedback tab within Universal Profile. Then, place the cursor in the Feedback field. The Feedback field expands to display additional options.
