If your organisation is using a 4-stage workflow, your reviews will have a self-assessment stage, a manager review stage and a sign off stage. Following this your sign off will close off the review.
Completing your self assessment
When completing your stage of a review, you can press the save and exit button if you would like to come back and edit or add to your answers. When you are happy with your self assessment and would like to submit your responses to your manager, you can press the Progress button.
The above dialogue allows you to confirm that you are happy that by progressing your review, you cannot change your answers. If you are happy with this, tick the box and click progress. Your review will now move into the ready for review stage.
Progressing a review as a manager
As in the self assessment stage, you have the option to save and exit if you would like to amend your comments or complete the review at a later date. When you are happy with your responses and would like to share them with your team member and close the review, press share and progress and tick the box confirming that you are happy with submitting the review.
You may choose to just share with other review supervisors if you would like to collaborate with the sign off on your responses and make them aware of your comments before sharing with your team member.
Progressing a review as the second sign off
Once a manager has completed their stage of the review, sign off managers can complete their section. You may wish to review and confirm the manager's responses and provide some of your own. When you have done so, click on share and progress.
You can choose to share your comments with the individual reviewee and the manager, or you can choose to just share with other review supervisors. You can then tick the box to close the review. By doing so, all responses will be submitted and cannot be changed.
We advise only closing the review once an in-person meeting has been held and all individuals are happy with the responses provided.
