Development Plan Preferences

Development Plan Preferences enable administrators to configure the way a development plan looks and what options are available for managers and end users.

To manage Development Plan Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Performance Management > Development Plan Preferences. These preferences are managed by division.

Overwrite Settings

Select this option to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

  • If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings are updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.
  • A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.
  • An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.
