Note: You can either do the performance review by the KRAs/Goals added or have Goals mapped to the KRAs and give a rating for them.

There are some email alerts that are already configured to notify employees when the appraisal cycle starts, to remind reviewers to complete their review etc. You can customize these mail alerts or also add new email alerts as required.

 Tip : To customize the already configured email alerts, go to Settings > Automation > Workflow. Click on the respective workflow to edit it. Click here to know how to create new email alerts.

Once the appraisal cycle is started, employees will be able to do the self-appraisal, Multi-Rates can give their rating and managers can do the review for their subordinates and the final rating can be given.

Appraisal Notifications

There are some notifications that are already configured for each step of performance evaluation. Notifications will be sent automatically as and when each step gets completed in the appraisal process. 

You can customize these notifications.

  • From your home page, go to Performance > Settings > Customize Forms

You will be able to see all the configured mail alerts.

  • Click on the Edit icon to edit the mail alert

You can also disable the notifications under Automation > Workflow

The salary of the employees should be in the system for the updated salary after appraisal to be reflected.

To add or import employee salary:

  • From your home page, go to Performance > Employee Salary

  • Add Salary or Import salary details in one go

During the review, once the hiked amount is entered, the consolidated amount will be calculated based on the salary details that have been added/imported.
