This guide assumes you are using a Form Template which contains a Third Party Comments Section. For information on how to add this Section to a Form Template, see the Sections on Form Templates guide.
The Third Party Comments Section of a Form gives Line Managers the ability to request feedback from a third party about their report (the User). For example, if the User had been working closely with another person on a project. The comments can only be viewed by the Line Manager (the section will not show at all for the User) so if the Manager would like to share the comments, they would need to do this another way, e.g. verbally.
When completing the form, the Manager will click on the New Recipient button to obtain comments.
The Line Manager can compose an email using the pop-up window (as displayed) to send to the third party they would like feedback from.
The third party will receive an email inviting them to provide comment relating to the individual. The third party clicks on a link in the email, enters their comments into the dialogue box and then clicks on Submit your comment.
They will be asked to confirm the submission.
The comments will be available for the manager to view within the Form.
Note: Third parties will not be able to participate if the Form has already been signed off and completed.
