Universal Profile - Feedback - Overview

The Feedback homepage allows you to view your own feedback, recognition, and milestone posts. You may also be able to request feedback from this page. When viewing the Feedback homepage for another user, you can post feedback for that user.

This functionality is fully optimized for use on mobile devices and is only available for organizations using the Performance module.

To access the Feedback homepage, go to Home > Universal Profile. Then, click the Feedback tab. Note: The location of this link is configurable by your system administrator.

When viewing another user's Feedback page, you may be able to view feedback, post feedback, award badges, assign training, and launch off-cycle performance reviews.

To access another user's Universal Profile - Bio page, click the user's photograph from any page within Universal Profile or from Global Search. From there, you can access the user's Feedback page by clicking the Feedback tab.

View Feedback

When someone posts feedback for you, it appears on your Feedback page. The following information is displayed with each feedback post:

  • User Image - An image of the user who posted the feedback is displayed next to each post. If the user does not have an image in the system or if the feedback post is anonymous, then a generic image is displayed.
  • User Name - The name of the user who posted the feedback is displayed next to the user image. If the feedback post is anonymous, then "Anonymous" is displayed as the user's name.
  • Feedback Content - The content of the feedback post is displayed next to the feedback provider's image and name.
  • Timestamp - A timestamp is displayed with each feedback post to indicate when the post was made. The timestamp is always displayed in the time zone of the user who is viewing the feedback.

View Comments

When users add comments to a post, the comments appear below the original post in reverse chronological order with the most recent comments displayed at the bottom. A timestamp is displayed with each comment to indicate when the comment was made. The timestamp is always displayed in the time zone of the user who is viewing the post.

If a posting has more than one reply at its root level, then a Show more comments link is displayed with the number of additional comments that are available. Select the link to view up to 10 of the most recent replies. If 10 comments are displayed and there are additional comments available, then a View full posting link is displayed. Select the link to view the Posting Details page in a new tab where all of the posting replies are visible.

If a posting reply has one or more replies, then a Show recent replies link is displayed with the number of additional replies that are available. Select the link or the Reply icon to view up to 10 of the most recent replies. If 10 comment replies are displayed and there are additional comment replies available, then a View full posting link is displayed.

Filter Feedback and Badges

When viewing your Feedback page, you have the option to view only feedback, only badges, or both. This is controlled by the checkboxes below the Feedback field at the top of the page.

  • Feedback - When this option is checked, feedback posts and requests are displayed on the Feedback page.
  • Badges - When this option is checked, badges and goal posts are displayed on the Feedback page.

Both are checked by default. If both options are unchecked, then no posts are displayed.
