  • The Supporting Information Pod is where all the feedback is stored from the "Ask for Feedback" response option.
  • The Supporting Information Pod also allows users to add and access attachments, if permissioned, in the PM form template.
  • You can grant permission to the Supporting Information pod/button from advanced configuration options for PM v12 templates.
  • Go to Admin Tools > Performance Management > Manage Templates > Select your template and open the "Advanced Configuration" options.
  • An additional permission option for Button Permissions is "Supporting Information".
  • If a user grants this to a person/role at specific steps, they will be able to access all the supporting information that users have submitted via email through the "Request Feedback" option.
  • If a role has not been granted permissions it will not be able to access the responses from "Ask for Feedback".
