Use the Review Section page to determine if a section contains goals, competencies, or Rating Scale, and response questions. Custom Fields may be added to any section, except Sign-Off sections. Rating Scale and/or Text Response questions may be added to sections containing goals and competencies. Suggested comments may be added to each Rating Scale question. Weights can be applied to each free form question. When entering the directions for a section, you may insert tags that are replaced with information about the employee reviewed or with links to that employee's performance data.
