Assuming you aren't a review admin, the visibility settings for a review cycle aren't readily accessible/referenced from your view. This article discusses the visibility options available to review admins when they set up a review cycle.
For a specific list of who can see your review, go to the 'review' in question. Find the 'Review details' box on the left. Under the Transparency header, visibility settings will be noted.

Visibility settings for reviews
This organizational setting determines who will be able to see submitted reviews and summaries. Reviews become visible upon submission.
- Hierarchy visibility:
- Review answers can be viewed by the individual, their manager, anyone above their manager, and review admins. This is the same default hierarchy view that exists for 15Fives. The participant, their immediate manager, their manager's manager, their manager, up your branch of the hierarchy, AND review admins can see a given participant's reviews.
- Basic visibility:
- Review answers can be viewed by the individual, their manager, and review admins. This visibility only allows the immediate manager and review admins to view the reviews.
Peer review transparency
Select how participants see their peer review answers and peer identities.
We recommend making peer reviews visible to participants. Consider training employees to give better feedback. See this piece for tips.
- Participants will see all peer answers verbatim.
- Participants can see a summary of their peer reviews written by their manager.
Everyone, reviews are fully transparent to participants:
Identities of peers will be shown regarding peer reviews—meaning participants can see who wrote what about them.
Everyone except for the participant:
Peers' identities will be transparent to review administrators, the participant's manager, and the participant's hierarchy (if applicable).
No one, reviews are fully anonymous to everyone who can see the review:
Peers' identities will be hidden from everyone. No exceptions, even review administrators and managers.
Review admins cannot see the identities of their own peer reviews if the settings are partially or fully anonymous; ie review admins will not be able to see who wrote what for their own peer reviews because of their role as review admin.
Upward review transparency
- Managers will see all their upward review answers verbatim. Though all peer answers will be shown verbatim, you can manage the peer identity setting below.
- Managers can see a summary of their upward reviews from their manager, but will not see upward answers verbatim. This is a bulk setting and will apply to all upward reviews in the cycle.
- Everyone, reviews are fully transparent to managers:
- Identities of direct reports will be shown regarding upward reviews—meaning managers can see who wrote what about them.
- Everyone except for manager:
- Direct reports' identities will be transparent to review administrators and the manager's hierarchy (if applicable).
- No one, reviews are fully anonymous to everyone who can see the review:
- Direct reports' identities will be hidden from everyone. No exceptions, even review administrators.
Release peer and upward feedback
This setting allows managers and/or review admins to control what peer and upward feedback is released; in the case that an answer is inappropriate or not constructive.
- All answers will be shared and no answers can be removed
- Allow review admins to remove answers from a review before results are shared
- Allow review admins and managers to remove answers from a review before the results are shared
