Change a reviewer

We understand that org changes happen and manager changes are common. When managers switch, it's easy to reflect these changes in your 15Five settings. Reviewers are responsible for things like reviewing Check-ins, holding 1-on-1s with their direct report(s), monitoring objectives, supporting their direct report(s) via Best-Self Review®, and more. 

If you are a direct report and recently changed teams, please contact an account administrator to make this switch for you. If your company is in the middle of an active review cycle, we recommend waiting to update any reviewers until after the cycle has been completed. This is due to the implications of changing a reviewer during an active cycle.

Note

If the person you are trying to assign as a reviewer does not appear in the drop-down, there is likely a reviewer loop restricting this change. Additionally, if you are at the top of the reporting hierarchy, you will not be able to select a reviewer. Since everyone reports to you either directly or down the line, this would cause a reviewer loop. Top level employees can have others follow them.
