1. To enable: Navigate to Admin tools > Form Template Settings > select a template > Enable Ask for Feedback Responses in Supporting Pod permissions

Important Information:
• The permissions are only applied to the Performance Form page. The Team Overview page will continue to function as it always has and will only show the feedback received to requester.
• The copy of the form which is kept in the En Route folder will apply the permissions that were assigned to the step when the performance form left the user’s inbox. The supporting information pod will continue to update with new feedback if the user had permission in that step i.e. the supporting information pod is not a snapshot of when the form was sent.
