  • A feedback request can be sent with between 1-3 questions (at least 1 question/answer pair is required to send a feedback request or to give feedback). 
  • It is not necessary to create feedback requests using all 3 question options.
  • The max character limit for the feedback questions is 250 Characters and 4000 characters for the feedback response.
  • There is no limit to the number of feedback responses that may be received.
  • The default Feedback Question text may be amended via Manage Languages - see this KBA on how to update system labels: 2576546 - Using the Manage Language Feature to Change Labels in SuccessFactors
  • If a user wishes to request Feedback using the default Feedback Questions (i.e. does not edit the questions), the user to whom the request is made will see the Feedback Questions in the language of the Feedback Requester.  There is no automatic translation of the default Feedback Questions. 
  • The existing Continuous Feedback E-mail Notifications will be triggered when feedback requests are sent, received, and responded to.

Feedback Received Details

When viewing feedback received, a user may drill into the card to perform the following actions:

  • Make feedback visible to manager
  • Link feedback to an activity or an achievement
  • Delete feedback

Note: You can delete only the responses received on your own feedback requests. You cannot delete the feedback received on requests from your manager.
