Writing Tools: Import Comments and Performance Notes

This tool gives you the ability to import comments from the self-evaluation and from peer evaluations. It will also allow for you to import performance notes that you have entered on the employee.

Import Comments:
By default, comments entered on the employee for the specific value, goal, or responsibility will be visible within the Suggested Results section. Check the box to the left of each comment that you wish to import and then click 'Add to Comments'. The comment(s) will appear in the 'Comments' box below. You may need to format the comments and you can also add or remove text as appropriate.

Import Performance Notes:
In addition to adding comments from the self and peer evaluations, you can also import Performance Notes that you have entered on the employee. To import these notes, click on the 'Find Additional Content' drop-down box at the bottom of the page, select 'Performance Notes' and click 'Go'. This will take you to a search page where you can enter a date range (optional) and click 'Search'. The search will return all performance notes that you have entered on the employee within the date range entered. If there is no date range defined, it will just return all notes entered on the employee. Check the box to the left of each note that you wish to import and then click 'Add to Comments'. The note(s) will appear in the 'Comments' box below. You may need to format the comments and you can also add or remove text as appropriate.

You can either:
  • Click 'Save and Return' to import your comments and return to the performance document
  • Click 'Cancel' to return to the performance document without importing any comments
