Review Summary

A performance review includes key assessment information based on an employee’s day-to-day activities. Specific pages, such as the Review Summary page, are used in Performance Reviews to assist with the employee review process.

The Review Summary page provides employee performance review information. Sections are configured and assigned to a review when a template is created, and display on the Review Summary page once the review is distributed. These sections are completed by the contributors identified on the Review Summary page.

Contributors can collaborate on the information provided on the Review Summary page. Contributors have access to the page for only those employees for which they are assigned to review. Contributors can rate themselves, rate subordinates, or approve a review. Employees can access and view only those sections that pertain to their role as contributors.
Note If ratings are not available for selection, the review may be configured for comments only.

Each section on the Review Summary page contains icons and buttons to serve as status indicators during the review process.
