Managers can learn how to use the online Performance Review tool through resources on the Tufts Employee Learning and Development (TELD) website, where they can access a 15-minute self-paced eLearning for how to use the online performance review to write reviews.
Note: When a manager goes into an employee’s performance review and receives a message that there are no key performance areas for the employee, that just means that the individual does not have key performance areas documented in their FY16 Performance Plan, but it does not stop the manager from writing the review. If that message is received, click “OK” and the“Additional Comments and Ratings” page will appear. There are two text boxes on that page for areas for continuous improvement and additional accomplishments; feedback can be entered there.
If writing a review and the page is idle for more than 20 minutes without successfully saving, it will have time out and anything documented would be lost. TL& D would suggest writing the review in a Word document first and then copy and pasting into the system.
