How to create a personal SMART objective from inside a review
In this lesson, we will look at how you can add personal objective inside of a review. Not every review in the platform will allow you to review the employee’s objectives, however if this has been enabled this lesson will provide guidance on those that have been configured this way. This lesson applies to SMART objectives only.
You will only be able to see the OBJECTIVES section of the review if you are the Reviewer, these follow the feedback questions you are required to answer. Here you are able to add new objectives for the Reviewee.
This tab will display a list of all the Reviewee’s open objectives.
Click on the plus button next to the green ‘Completed’ tab. This will open the ‘Add Objective’ pop-up.
From here you can select from a number of templates, all of which have been created by your system administrator. Select the objective template you wish to use from the list.
If you have any queries regarding which template should be used, please contact your system administrator.
Update the fields within the form, taking in to consideration that most of the fields will be pre-populated from the template. For further information on populating the fields within the form, please refer to the table at the bottom of this lesson.
Click the ‘Save’ button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to add the Objective to the platform.
