If you can view a 15Five, you can use the 'Pass it up' option to alert your manager of an item that needs further discussion. Viewing a 15Five includes followers, managers, and anyone who can view through drill-down or group viewing. The pass up feature makes it easier to remember and discuss important items you come across while viewing someone else's 15Five; as these items will appear on your own report to discuss with your manager.
You can pass up an answer or a priority, and it will appear on your current 15Five. If you miss submitting a 15Five report, the passed up answers will roll over to your next 15Five check-in.
For example: Dwight reports to Michael. As Dwight is viewing Pam's 15Five, he sees an answer that he wants to bring up with his manager (Michael), so he clicks the 'Pass it up' option. Now Pam's answer will appear on Dwight's current 15Five and act as a reminder for Dwight and Michael to discuss.

Even followers can pass up answers. The passed up answers will still appear on their own check-in to discuss with their manager. This can be used if a teammate you follow leaves an answer that you would like to talk with your manager about. If you do not submit your 15Five report that week, the answer will show up on your next week's report to be passed up to your manager as the initial report was not submitted to them. Also note, reporters will see when one of their answers has been passed up.
