About the Participants Tab

You can manage the people taking your 360 survey by navigating to the Participants section of the Participants tab. In addition to accessing a number of tools, you can search and edit participants in this section.

Qtip: Want to learn how to upload participants? Visit our Adding Subjects, Evaluators, and Managers support page.

Subsections

There are three subsections to the Participants section: Subjects, Evaluators, and Managers.

image of the participants tab of a 360 project. The Subjects, Managers, and Evaluators subsections are highlighted at the top of the tab

Each subsection only displays participants who belong to the category of the same name. Subjects only displays Subjects, Evaluators only display Evaluators, and so on. When you search participants on a subsection, you are only searching for ones that fit within that subsection.

Qtip: A participant may show up in multiple subsections. For example, if Jane Doe has a self evaluation to complete, she is both her own subject and her own evaluator, and will appear on both the Subjects and Evaluators subsections.

Even the tools for each section are the same, with the exception of Reset Participants being on the Subjects subsection. See the linked page for more details.

For more information on the differences between these kinds of participants, and for instruction on how to upload them, see the page on Adding Subjects, Evaluators, and Managers.

Advanced Search

You can search for a desired participant by typing a name or email address into the Search bar, or you can make use of the Advanced Search feature.

  5. Fill out your remaining fields.
  6. Combine or remove conditions by clicking the plus (+) and minus () signs to the right of a condition.

Once you’ve found the participants you’re interested in, click their names to open their Participation Information Window. Here, you can manage their metadata, manage their permissions, and perform other actions.

Search Criteria

The available criteria are as follows:

  • Name or Email, Last Name, First Name, and Email Address: Search by a participant’s name or email address.
  • Has Relationship: Filter by participants of a certain relationship. This does not filter by who they share the relationship with; only if it’s been assigned to them at all.
  • Metadata: Search by metadata fields you uploaded with your participants.
  • Nomination Requirements: Filter by whether the participant completed their nomination requirements or not.
  • Self Evaluation: Filter by whether the participant completed their self-evaluation or not.
  • Evaluations: Filter by whether all their evaluations have been completed, or if the participant has evaluations that still need approval.
  • Evaluations Received: Filter by the number of evaluations the participant has received.
  • Tasks: Filter by whether all tasks have been completed, or if the participant has viewed their own report. Tasks include evaluation, nominations, and viewing the report. In addition, managers may have the following special tasks: approving nominations, approving reports, and viewing their direct reports’ reports.
  • Manager Tasks: Filter by whether a manager has approved all nominations or reports.
  • External Evaluators: Search by whether an evaluator is “external” or not. An external evaluator is an evaluator but not a subject. Often they are invited by the nomination process, but administrators can add them, too.
  • Removed: Search by whether you removed a participant from the list. You can choose to hide those who were removed or to only show those removed.
