Picking a Template
- My templates: templates you have created
- Global templates: templates available to the entire organization
- 7Geese template library: if enabled, this is a library of best practices templates

Note: When using an existing template, you can still edit the settings and topics before sending it out.
Setting Up Your Request
Once you create your new feedback request you will be brought to a screen where you can enter or change the settings and topics. All changes will be auto-saved so you don't have to worry about losing your work.
Feedback requests created from a template can be edited to suit your specific needs. When starting without a template you can customize the feedback request to how you would like it:
Enter in a name for your Feedback request. This is what will appear in the email and in-app notifications for responders.
Once you enter in a title for your request an option will pop up for you to enter in a description. Use the description box to add details or instructions to help guide the responders.
You can choose smart groups, which will pre populate users, to save time. If there are users in the group you don't want to send the request to, you can remove them after they are populated. You can choose from:
- My reports: if you're a manager, anyone who reports directly to you
- My 360 Group: people that report to the same person as you, your manager and your direct reports
- Departments: everyone in the specified department
- Everyone: everyone in the entire organization
Note: If these fields aren't editable this is due to settings on the template itself
