How to Select Feedback Providers

In this article: 



In this article, you’ll learn the two ways to designate who should provide Feedback as part of a Feedback cycle.

As an admin, you will need to complete this step if you have designated that admins should select Feedback providers.

You can also choose to select feedback providers on behalf of your employees even if you have designated that employees are responsible for selecting their own feedback providers.

If you have set up your template such that feedback groups are automatically invited to provide feedback, you will not need to complete this step. 

Learn more about the Feedback Cycle Setup.

Import Feedback Providers for an Existing Cycle

Admin users can import Feedback providers via a .csv file either before or after the Feedback cycle is officially open.

If you are using a template that automatically invites providers, you don't have to add providers who would otherwise, be invited automatically anyway.

Manually adding providers who will be automatically invited anyway can result in a failed import

Add Feedback Providers from the Feedback Homepage

As an admin, Feedback Providers can be added from the Feedback home page for active cycles. 


During the cycle setup, if users were given the ability to select their own Providers, users can select Providers from the Feedback homepage or via the email notification that prompts them to select their Providers.
