2078697 - Ratings - Other's Rating Tab - Performance Management


  • How ratings work and are displayed in a PMv12A form is very different from a PM v11 form. PMv12A introduces a new "Others rating" section on the form.
  • What is Ratings from Others section on the PMv12A form and how do we permission it?


  • SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management


  • Others Ratings collects a kind of audit trail of users’ ratings in the rating of record field (item-­‐rating).
    These are then displayed in the Other's Rating tab.
  • In the Modify Stage, the logged-in user ALWAYS sees his/her ratings & comments on the left side of the form
  • In all stages, other users ratings and comments are viewable on the right side of the form, but usually you have to click to find them.


  • The older version of PM v12 supported the owner-role attribute, which means you can set field permissions not only by role and step, but by which user’s “copy” of the field you’re Permissioning.
    • Owner-role is supported for the following rating fields:
      • Item-rating
      • Section-rating
      • Manual-overall-rating
      • Calculated-overall-rating

PMv12 Acceleration Permissioning

  • Within PMv12a, you are now able to set permissions to the Other's Rating Tab within Manage Templates.
    • These permission settings support granting/denying access to specific roles within specific route steps as well.


  • To access these permissions, navigate to Admin Center>>Performance Management>>Manage Templates>>*Choose your template that you wish to edit*
    • You can then see these permissions in the "General Settings" menu by clicking "Show Advanced Options" and then clicking the "Other's Rating Tab Permission" link.
    • If you do not have a route map linked to the template, you will not be able to see these permissions.
