Key Information for Supervisors

  • User Roles - Please familiarize yourself with the information related to "User Roles".   User roles are key in facilitating the proper routing of the appraisal and it is critical that the department leadership team thinks through the routing/approval/signature process that they want supervisors to follow. 
  • Annual Employee Setup - You will need to set up the roles for each person involved in the EPAR process, the employees you supervise and the departmental approval chain.  Please refer to the user guide for the details related to "Employee Setup" about how to setup, modify, delete information and/or transfer one or more employees to another supervisor.
  • Filling out Your Employee's Performance Appraisal - There are three parts to this portion:
    • Part I - Last Year's Performance
    • Part II -Future Goals
