New PerformanceHub Release
We have added to our existing set of features, to bring you even more ways to be more in-keeping with ‘continuous performance development’.
If you want to move towards ‘Continuous performance development’ (more of a living document, than an periodic big bang) then these might be for you:
- Allow objective due dates to be set outside of a review period (Long Running Objectives).
- Configure objectives so that any unfinished ones automatically roll over into the next review period.
- Enable a new feature called “Rolling appraisals”. This allows your whole process to continually roll, and never require ‘locking down’ at the end of a review period.
To find out more about any of these ‘continuous’ features, please get in touch as they are quite involved and need some ‘splainin.

Appraisals vs Reviews
Want to move away from the term Appraisal? Well, now you can. Let us know and we can replace ‘Appraisal’ with ‘Review’. Want something else instead? – please let us know.
Automatic Appraisal Sharing
Want to ensure the process keeps flowing at appraisal time? You can now enable automatic appraisal sharing, so that once people start to fill in appraisals, the content is automatically shared after 7 days.
Only Share When Complete
Are some people only sharing part of an appraisal before the appraisal meeting, so are not fully prepared when they go into the meeting? Well, to help with that, you can now configure PerformanceHub so that all mandatory sections in an appraisal need to be filled in before it can be shared.
Minimum number of probation objectives
I’m sure you know, but you have been able to set the minimum number of objectives employees are expected to have ever since day 1, but now you can set a different minimum number for employees on probation to those not on probation. If you have the probation reviews feature enabled, and you want to set this new feature, then pop into the config area and you will see it in the Probations section.
Disable Private Objectives
You can now turn private objectives off altogether. Private objectives should only be used for ‘super sensitive’ information. As such, PerformanceHub goes to great lengths to make sure they aren’t revealed inadvertently. Perhaps too great lengths because we have found that some people forget they set them in the first place. If you want to avoid any kind of confusion, you can now simply turn off private objectives.
