Create Review Section - Development Plan

Development Plan sections enable reviewers to add training and action steps to a development plan for the reviewee while completing the performance review task. Administrators can configure whether the training and action steps are added to the reviewee's primary development plan or a new performance review development plan.

To create a performance review section, go to Admin > Tools > Performance Management > Form Sections. Then, click the Create Review Section link.

Development Plan Options

Select whether the Development Plan section creates a new performance review development plan or builds upon the reviewee's existing primary development plan. Reviewers can add training and action steps to the selected development plan.

  • Reviewee's Primary Development Plan - This option is selected by default. When this option is selected, if the reviewee has an existing primary development plan, then a read-only view of the reviewee's primary development plan is displayed in the review section. Also, additional training or action steps can be added to the reviewee's primary development plan within the performance review section. Note: If this option is selected and the reviewee does not currently have a primary development plan, then the Development Plan performance review section automatically creates a new performance review development plan, which becomes the reviewee's primary development plan.
  • Create a new Performance Review Development Plan - When this option is selected, a new performance review development plan is created, and training or action steps can be added to the development plan within the performance review section. The newly created development plan is created upon the final submission of the performance review. The newly created development plan has the following title: {Name of Performance Review} Development Plan (e.g., 2013 Annual Review Development Plan). This title can be edited after the development plan is created.
