Reference for managers who have questions about using the online performance review system to write a performance review.
A Manager will automatically have access to all of his/her Direct Reports in the Performance Review system. If someone is not listed as a Direct Report, this needs to be updated through the Workforce Portal and once the change is made, the Manager will be able to see that Direct Report as well.
Managers can learn how to use the online Performance Review tool through resources on the Performance and Development section of Access Tufts, 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 (goals) documented in their 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. Managers can also upload the document as an attachment on this page. NOTE: the copy/paste function does not work in the online performance planning and review system when using Internet Explorer. Keyboard shortcuts for copy/paste do work in both Firefox and Chrome. Additional Manager Resources, such as a SMART Goal Worksheet, Feedback Planner, and Options to solicit employee feedback are available on the Performance and Development section of AccessTufts.
