When creating your review form templates, you can choose to use different question types depending on what you're looking to discuss. This enables you to customise your templates to reflect your organisation's review process.
All these question types can be made 'employee-only' or 'manager-only' if necessary. They can also be used for your feedback questions.
This provides a text box for employees to enter their comments.
This provides a rating scale made up of numbers or text for employees to select one option from.
You can customise this rating scale either by adding JSON to the question type if the scale is unique to one question. Alternatively, if you'd like the same scale across your account go to Configuration > Forms. You can change the numbers to text, reorder the boxes and choose your desired colours. Please see the custom rating help page for more information how to configure it.
Text box and ratings / Text box and appraiser-only ratings
This provides the option for employees to leave a rating and comment in answer to one question. If you select the latter option, the appraisee will only see a text box while the appraiser will also be able to provide a rating that will be seen by the appraisee when shared.
This enables you to add a header or instruction that doesn't require any responses. You can add links to internal documents here too.
This allows employees to select a date from the calendar.
You can customise this percentage slider and it can be used as an alternative to a button rating scale.
Tick box list
This allows employees to select multiple options from a predetermined list.
This allows employees to only input numerical data.
Two text boxes
This allows the responses to a text question to be split into two columns.
Two number boxes
This allows the responses to a number question to be split into two columns.
If you're using instant feedback or 'get feedback', you can embed the employee's recent feedback stream in forms using the feedback stream question:
If you have a Talent Management section or review, you may wish to include a 9-box grid by selecting the Grid Only question type. This will automatically create the grid below but if you'd like to customise it, you can select the Show advanced editing options such as privacy and special components? tick box at the top of your form to edit the JSON.
This pulls in the job description that is assigned to the employee on the People tab. The review will retain the job description the person was assigned at the time the review was created. Note: if you assign one after the review is in progress, it won't automatically update.
File upload slot
This allows your employees to upload a file. Files can be attached to other text box questions but this option has a specific file upload button.
Nominate a colleague + comment
This allows your employees to search for another user on your account and add a comment. The email address of the tagged user will show in the reports for this question.
Feedback invitation list + invite button
The Request feedback button will always be available on the left panel of the review and on the review tile (if enabled on your account and the form allows feedback responses). However, this question type allows you to embed the invitation list and invite button somewhere within the review itself if you'd like to make it more prominent.
