When you gather feedback, you may notice that the set of skills you ask for feedback on changes from peer to peer, depending on your working dynamic with them. Since our launch, we've heard the growing need for more customization with gathering feedback. Now with Custom Surveys, you'll be able to request feedback on specific skills from peers who know you best.
Recently presented at your team's all-hands? Now, you can gather feedback on specific, relevant skills like Public Speaking and Body Language. Just wrapped up your first cross-functional project? Be laser-focused and ask for feedback on just a single skill like Leadership or Supportiveness. Whether you want feedback on just a specific skill or several, you'll be able to do that today with ease using Custom Surveys.
You can create a Custom Survey by going to the Home page, then clicking Request Feedback. After selecting Create Custom Surveys, you can choose specific skills to gather feedback on.
