Launch Off-cycle Performance Review

The Launch Performance Review page enables users to launch off-cycle performance reviews. When launching the performance review, the user can select the reviewee, the review task they are launching, and they can enter the purpose of the review.

A user can launch as many concurrent off-cycle reviews of the same task as necessary.

The Launch Performance Review page can be accessed in the following manners:

  • Click the Launch Off-Cycle Task link from the Performance Review Details page.
  • Click the Launch Review button from the Performance Review Summary page.
  • Click the Launch Review link for a subordinate in My Team > Activities or My Team > Performance > Reviews.

Who is this review for?

Using the radio buttons, select the reviewee for the review you are launching.

  • Me - Select this option if you are launching a review for yourself
  • Someone else - Select this option if you are launching a review for someone else. You must then click the User field to select the appropriate user. Only one user can be selected.
  • If a user accesses this page by clicking the Launch Review link in My Team, then the "Someone else" option is automatically selected and the reviewee is pre-populated with the appropriate My Team user.
  • If an administrator accesses this page by clicking the Launch Off-Cycle Task link on the Performance Review Details page, then the administrator must click the Add Users link to select reviewees for the task. The administrator can select as many users as necessary.

Which review form would you like to use?

Click the Select Review Form field to select the appropriate review form. If necessary, use the search functionality to locate the review form.

  • A review form is only available if it is available for the reviewee and can be assigned by you.
  • A review form is only available if it either does not have a fixed end date or if the fixed end date has not yet passed.
  • A review form is not available if there is a fixed end date and there is not sufficient time to complete all steps in the review.
  • If there is only one review form you can assign to the selected reviewee, then that task is automatically selected and this cannot be changed.
  • If an administrator accesses this page by clicking the Launch Off-Cycle Task link on the Performance Review Details page, then the review form is pre-populated with the appropriate form, but can be changed if necessary.
