Is there a spell check?

Yes, as long as you are using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your browser. The spell check function is automatic, and will display an incorrectly spelled word with a red wavy underline. To correct spelling, simply right-click on the word, and a list of correct word options will appear.

How often should I save my work?

Whenever you click “Next” in a form, your work will automatically save.  You will see a light green bar across the top of your screen confirming this is the case.  If you do not see that bar, your work has not been saved, and you will need to click the “Save Draft” button.

The text box is too small. Is there any way to make it bigger?

Yes, as long as you are using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your browser. You can adjust the size of any text box by moving your cursor to the lower right corner of the box, where you will see two small diagonal lines. All you need to do is grab that corner with your mouse and stretch the box to the size you wish.

I am writing an evaluation for an employee, and my supervisor wants to read and review the evaluation before I finalize it for the employee. Is there a way I can do that without printing a hard copy?

Yes. When you have the employee’s evaluation open in draft form, click on “Add Co-Reviewer” at the top of the screen. You can then type in the last name of your supervisor in the box. Select the name of the correct individual, and then click Save.  Your supervisor will now be able to read – and edit – the employee’s review.

What does the “Return” button at the bottom of my acknowledgement form mean?

The Return button will send the form back to your supervisor with your comments or questions. If you have a question or concern the form you’ve been asked to acknowledge, simply put your comments into the box provided, and click Return. This will send your comments back to your supervisor for their consideration, and allow them to edit the form if they choose.

When does a performance cycle start and end?

A performance cycle begins at the end of your last performance appraisal, and ends whenever you are evaluated again. This varies by department and individual, but is often March to March.
