Performance Management

Reminder on Routing (Step Exit Reminder)

Allows admins to identify forms that did not route properly after a manager change has been made. The Check Tool will provide a way to correct forms that the system has detected as blocked.

Configuration Type: Universal

Why is it important? Allows admins to correct the issue with a blocked form without having to open a support ticket.

Mobile

An integration between Learning and Continuous Performance Management that will allow user to:

  • Create CPM Activities for My Assignments Learning items from the item details screen

  • Delete CPM Activities when deleting Learning Assignments if created in Learning Assignments
  • Create CPM Achievements from completed Learning items history details screen
  • Display in CPM Activity & Achievement screens that the achievement/activity was creating from a Learning item

Configuration Type: Universal

Why is it important? Enhances the user experience for Learning and Continuous Performance Management by no longer requiring the user to go from tab to tab.

Minor but Helpful Enhancements:
