To enable the Performance management add-on, Officevibe needs to know who the direct manager of each team member is.
This is where the Direct Manager field comes in. Before adding any participants to a Cycle, you will be asked to make sure they have a Direct Manager assigned. Team Managers or Executive managers can be assigned as Direct Managers of members of their associated teams.
There are two ways to assign Direct Managers to participants:
- Bulk assign Direct Managers using bulk provisioning (you must use the Direct Manager's email for this option, not their name).
- Manually assign Direct Managers in members settings.
Only Team Managers or Executive Managers assigned as Direct managers can fill out Manager reviews. Team members with no assigned Direct Manager cannot participate in any cycle events.
