Appraisd has a Sense Check report that detects problems on your account. This report can be emailed to Administrators on a weekly basis (Monday at about 09:00 UTC).
The report is split into Important and Low-priority notices. Here's a list of notices and typical resolution steps the Administrators should take:
|Missing or inactive manager / sign-off manager.||The user doesn't have a default manager or second-sign-off defined. Either specify who the manager or second-sign-off is on the user's details page, or select 'This person is not appraised' from the selection box.|
|This probationary review is due in the next 7 days.||A probationary review is due soon – you may like to pay close attention to the outcome and provide support to the line manager and appraisee.|
|Missing or inactive manager or sign-off manager for review.||A review has been set up but no line manager or second-sign-off is associated with it. This could happen if you deactivate a manager without reassigning the reviewee to a new manager. See Editing a review|
|Current review has a different manager to the reviewee's default.||
This usually means that a person has moved to a new line manager, yet their current review is still tied to the previous manager. Edit the review and select the appropriate new manager. See Editing a review
However, in a few circumstances this is desirable – for instance, if you'd like a temporary manager to conduct a review while the user's normal manager is away.
|Multiple reviews in progress. Please ensure all but one are closed.||Using the Reviews tab, find the user's reviews and close all of them except for the one(s) that should be in progress.|
|Current review is on a different workflow to the person's default.||This happens when you have multiple workflows enabled on your account. Each person has a default workflow, yet this review is set to run on a different workflow. Either edit the review and set it onto the correct workflow, or update the user's default workflow to the correct one.|
|No review in the diary.||The user doesn't have any future reviews set up.|
|Review is more than 30 days overdue.||The review is overdue and you may like to intervene.|
