In Preview

Preview features are enabled only in sandbox instances

When you provision a new instance of Talent, you can specify whether the instance type is Production or Sandbox. Instances of the Sandbox type allow for early testing of new features. All existing Talent instances will be updated to the Production instance type. If you want one of your existing instances to be updated to the Sandbox instance type, contact Support to initiate the change request.

For more information about how changes are published, see Provision Talent.

View extended information for performance in manager self-service

A new option will let managers view the performance of both their direct reports and their extended reports. Currently, line managers can assign and update performance goals and issue new reviews. In addition, direct managers and their employees can maintain and update performance journals to help ensure that the performance review process goes smoothly. When this change is implemented, managers will be able to view and maintain performance-related information for their extended reports in addition to their direct reports.
