Performance reviews are not automatically shared at the cycle deadlines. Each individual can share their review, though HR Admins do have the ability to share on behalf of employees.
If your employees can’t sign their reviews, it’s likely because one or both parties have not yet shared. You can check that on the cycle administration page:
As an HR Admin, it’s possible to share the manager’s portion of the review. This option is available using the action-item drop-downs on the overview screen.
HR Admins can also share every review in the cycle on the administration page:
When a review is shared, each person can choose to unshare it from the body of the review. HR Admins can unshare reviews on behalf of the main reviewer. Self-assessments can only be unshared by the employee.
Note that you can only unshare reviews if the deadline to share has not yet passed. You can adjust the cycle settings to allow more time to edit reviews.
HR Admins can revoke the signature of signed reviews on the Admin page:
Completing a review locks it from further editing, without the signature of either party. You can complete all the reviews in a cycle from the Admin menu or complete individual reviews on the action menu:
Editing signed or completed reviews
Sometimes people will need to revise a review that has been signed. Here are the steps to do so:
- Revoke the signature of both parties (or reopen if Complete).
- Allow the parties to unshare their reviews, or unshare the manager’s review from the Admin menu.
- The parties can now edit their un-shared reviews
- When the edits are done, they will need to re-share and then re-sign the reviews
