Assigning Step to Peer Group or Direct Reports
Assigning a task to Direct Reports assigns the task to all active direct reports for the employee being reviewed. If new users are added to the group after the step is assigned, they do not receive the task. If a user is removed from the group after receiving the task but before completing the step, they lose the task.
Assigning a task to an internal peer group assigns the task to all active users inside that peer group. Non-approved peers do not receive the task. If new users enter the group, they do not receive the task. If a user exits the group after receiving the task, they lose the task.
When assigning tasks to subordinates and peers, the rules for multiple submissions and due dates are the same as with any other relationships. If multiple submissions are allowed, each user is allowed to submit multiple times independently of each other and the step is not complete until the expiration date.
If a review step is assigned to peers or subordinates, it appears on the Scheduled Tasks page and in the My Tasks widget on the Welcome Page.
