Performance Feedback


This article explains how to create, manage and export performance feedback for employees via the Performance tab.

It also explains how employees can do the following via the Performance tab:

  • Create feedback, using feedback forms
  • View feedback that they have received

Performance Overview

In the Performance overview, you can create, manage and export feedback for an employee. To access it, go to the relevant employee's profile and click on the Performance tab.


Under the Feedback section, you can create feedback for an employee and employees can create feedback, using feedback forms.

Draft Feedback

Newly created feedback that has not been sent can be accessed under Draft feedback. Draft feedback can be edited. Only the creator of the draft feedback can view and edit it. 

Note After feedback is sent, it can be edited. Feedback is visible to everyone who has at least viewing rights for this section.

Received Feedback

Employees can view received feedback under Received feedback.

Note To create new feedback, an employee needs editing rights for the Performance data section. To view the feedback that was written for them, employees need at least viewing rights for their own Performance data

4. Optional: Add Supporting Documents

You also have the option to add supporting documents by clicking on the Click to upload files button. The documents will then also be added to the employee's Documents tab, and can be accessed from there.
