Natural HR is able to collect and store 360 degree, or multisource feedback, on an employee’s performance and their contribution(s) the employee makes to their colleagues. This will help the employee's manager to get a better understanding of their overall performance.
Feedback is typically provided by the employee's peers, direct reports, senior management colleagues etc and can be requested by an Admin, HR or Manager level user using a single standard question or a custom form which must be created first by going to
Administration > Company or HR > Form builder
Then click on 'Add' to create your form using the 360 feedback 'Form type', add the fields you want the feedback recipients to complete. These can be free text responses, Yes and No responses or in this case using 1 to 5 and 1 to 10 field options.
After clicking on 'Finish building form', the custom 360 feedback form is ready to be used.
To create a 360 feedback request go to
Performance > 360 feedback
Click on the 'Add' button to set up a 360 feedback request
- Select from the 'Feedback requested on' option, the name of the employee you want the feedback on.

The recipient completes the form and then clicks on 'Submit' to finish and save the responses.
You can check on the progress of the request by going to
Performance > 360 feedback
In the 'Responses' column you can see how many responses have been received and in the 'Response rate' column the percentage of responses received. There are also actions allowing you to add additional recipients, change the due by date or delete the request.

As with all reports, you can move fields up or down, delete a field or edit the name of the field.
- Adding filters can be useful when you want to focus on some, and exclude other data from your report. In this example filters have been added to:
- Active Equals Active - Only feedback for current (active) employees is reported
