Prerequisites for Creating Performance Documents:

Before you can create standard or anytime performance documents for workers, please ensure these prerequisites are met:

  • If the performance document has an eligibility profile associated with it, ensure the worker meets the eligibility criteria and ensure the eligibility batch process is run.
  • Workers need to have an assignment start date that’s before the performance document end date.
  • Workers need to have a manager in their assignment. If a worker doesn’t have a manager, for example, they’re the head of the company, then you can create a dummy manager for them.
  • If the performance template includes a Performance Goals section that doesn’t use synchronized goals, you can create performance documents only for workers who have a goal plan that matches the configuration of the Performance Goals section.

The following 11 steps are required to complete Performance Management setup:

  • Manage performance roles
  • Manage eligibility profiles
  • Manage process flow definitions
  • Manage sections for the process flow
  • Manage performance document type

  • Manage questionnaire templates
