  • sysOverallPerformance

Or In Configure People Profile Tool, it shows Block Type: TREND_BLOCK

With the Trend portlets (Performance, Potential, Competency and Objective portlets) from the Employee Profile, there is an option to include the “source” and “module” field.

The “source” and “module” fields, within the Trend portlets, allow users to identify where each rating comes from and how the rating was added to the system.

The “source” field displays where the rating comes from (such as the name of the form) and the “module” field displays how the information was added to the system (such as Performance Management).
