5/17/2023 - A separate appraisal process was implemented for the coaching staff.   The same process exists but the questions are different.   The Dynamic Form is called HR Appraisal Form (Athletic Coaches).   The process is the same but the questions differ.  Attached is the appraisal for athletic coaches.  AthleticAppraisal.pdf

HR must evaluate the Business Objects report ppsr183 to validate the data.   This report is pulled from Banner so any changes should be made in Banner if a supervisor is incorrect.   Once all the data in the report is correct, export the data to excel.  Delete any rows where individuals should not receive the invitation for an appraisal.  Send this spreadsheet to Pam Dart and she will send out the invitations to the employees listed on that report.
