As a company handling change in your feedback culture, you might want to gate the feedback that's being given. This means that a manager or a coach* can view and (if needed) revise feedback before the recipient will see it. A revision of the feedback could be useful for a number of reasons: not constructive, too harsh, too vague etc. Enabling gated feedback gives managers the ability to better help their team members with the feedback they receive.
Managers/coaches* can write a conclusion and choose to share either the original feedback, the conclusion, or both.
IMPORTANT: When Gated Feedback is enabled, the visibility option “Only Receiver” will not be available.
Enabling Gated Feedback
If you want to use this feature, first notify your success coach from Unit4 Talent Management. They will make the gated feedback settings visible on your platform. After that, you still have to turn the feature in your platform settings.
Go to Studio > Feedback > Settings
You will find a new section to enable the Gated Feedback
Choose who needs to review the feedback of a user. This can be the direct team leaders, team leaders from parent teams or coaches.
When enabling the option “Allow Conclusion”, the team leader or coach*, can revise the feedback. This could mean rewriting it, summarising it or adding their own comments to it. The team leader/coach* will have the ability to share either the original feedback, the revised version (called 'conclusion' on the platform) or both.
When you've gone over all the settings you want to enable, click on the Save Changes button on the top right.
