Manager-facing questions allow managers to provide more specific and targeted feedback to their people. They allow managers to share more pro-active feedback, such as coaching advice.
How it works is really simple. Once a manager-facing question is set, this will appear at the bottom of each employee's completed check-in. If appropriate, during the manager's review of each check-in, they can choose to leave additional feedback, unrelated to any question answered by the employee.
Your employees do not see the set manager-facing question, so if you have no additional feedback to share, you can leave these blank and come back to them at a future time as required.
