What is advanced tab on continuous feedback page? (Before v3.8.6.2)

Advanced tab on continuous feedback tab allows Employee Success admins/super admins to manage a few default settings for feedback labels and share with settings. 

There are two types of default settings available on advanced tab:

  • Manage feedback labels
  • Default shared with

Manage feedback labels

Feedback labels are to classify your feedback depending on different organisational values, expertise, departments, etc. These labels are also useful when you want to filter feedback on My Feedback page.

Previously Employee Success used to allow to create new feedback labels while creating or editing feedback. However, there was no control of administrators over creating number of new feedback labels or defining some default labels. To make that possible, we have added new tab called 'advanced'. Navigate to this tab through administration >> continuous feedback >> advanced. Let us see how this helps admins to keep control over feedback labels.

Advanced tab

Permission to create new labels while creating/editing feedback

  • When this option is checked, all Employee Success users will be able to create a new label while creating or editing feedback.

  • When this option is unchecked, Employee Success users will not be able to create a new labels while creating or editing feedback. They will only be able to use default feedback labels defined by Employee Success admins.(as shown in highlighted part 2)

Feedback labels 

  • This lists all labels defined by admins or non-admin users(depending on 'Allow label creation while creating/editing objective' option true or false)
  • Employee Success admins can delete existing labels by clicking on 'x' for each label.
  • When any label is deleted, it will be deleted from every associated feedback.
  • Email notification will be sent to the label creator about the obliteration of that label.

Create new

  • This option allows Employee Success admins to create a new label.

  • This option can be used to create new labels. Employee Success admins can also create a new label right from give/edit feedback pop-up even if 'Allow label creation while creating/editing objective' is unchecked.

New users, those are using Employee Success 3.7.7v and above, will have default list of labels. Creation of new labels or removal of existing labels will be allowed only to admin and super admins by default. Of course you can change this setting later as shown in point one in Manage feedback labels section above.

  • List of default labels
    • Adaptability
    • Communication
    • Decision making
    • Motivation
    • Planning
    • Problem solving
    • Quality of delivery
    • Reliability
    • Teamwork

Default shared with

Employee Successadmin or super admins can decide the default visibility of feedback. Once Employee Success admin or super admin selects an option as default, it will be available as default selection while creation/giving a new feedback. 

This option helps users avoid the possibility of selecting a wrong sharing option at the time of feedback creation. 

Creator of the feedback will have an opportunity to override the default selection.
