Talent Conference Helicopter View - Grid Functionality

When viewing the Talent Conference Helicopter View within a talent conference task, the system displays the selected metric grid with employee icons that correspond with the selected User Criteria, Date Criteria, Filters, and Color Code. The cells are labeled in accordance with the selected grid, and the employees are displayed within the cell that matches their metric ratings. If the number of users that are plotted in a grid cell exceeds the maximum number of visible employees, the system displays arrows within the cell, allowing the user to scroll up and down through the employees contained within the cell.

The Talent Conference Helicopter View can be configured to display ratings for employees based on a specific succession task or based on their most recent ratings.

To open a succession planning task, go to Home > Scheduled Tasks. Then, click the task name.

View All Users in Cell

When a user clicks the title of a cell, an employee selector pop-up displays all employees within the cell in alphabetical order by last name. The employee selector displays each employee's photo, name, and position, as well as a View Details button. Click the View Details button to open a detailed view of the employee. See Talent Conference Helicopter View - Employee Detailed View.

View User Details

When a user clicks an employee icon within the grid, an employee selector pop-up displays an overview of the employee, including the employee's photo, name, user name, and position. The pop-up also displays the following information:

  • The metric rating titles and values used to plot the employee's grid position. Note: An employee must have a rating for the specified metric for the progress bars to appear. The colors associated with the progress values are configurable for the metric rating scale in SMP Custom Field Administration.
  • The date on which the metric ratings were last updated.
  • The user who last updated the employee's succession ratings or grid placements.
  • Succession Log - Select this link to view a log of succession-related comments that have been added for the user from various locations in the system. See Succession Log.
  • A View Details button. Click the View Details button to open a detailed view of the employee. See Talent Conference Helicopter View - Employee Detailed View.
  • A Record Calibration button. Click the Record Calibration button to confirm the calibration data and finalize the user's position on the grid. See Talent Conference Helicopter View - Record Calibration.

Calibrate or Reposition Employee within Metric Grid

Users are positioned in the Talent Conference Helicopter View's grid based on their succession ratings. Each position in the grid corresponds with a specific combination of succession ratings.

Depending on the succession template's configuration, moderators may be able to calibrate a user's succession ratings by dragging and dropping the user's icon to a different cell within the grid.

See Talent Conference Helicopter View - Calibrate Ratings.

Record Calibration

Depending on the succession template's configuration, moderators may be able to calibrate a user's succession ratings by dragging and dropping the user's icon to a different cell within the grid. However, a calibration is not finalized until the calibration is recorded.

To record a calibration, click the employee's icon within the grid. Within the pop-up, click the Record Calibration button.

See Talent Conference Helicopter View - Record Calibration.

Reset Grid

If the grid placements are reset, this applies even if an employee has been repositioned and the new position has been saved and recorded. Once the original grid placements are reset, the asterisks are removed. This action cannot be undone.

Click the Reset Grid button in the upper-right corner of the grid to revert all employees to their original grid placements. A confirmation pop-up appears.
