2331016 - Reporting - Standard Spreadsheet reports do not respect RBP target population - Analytics


The classic reporting section has a set of pre-built spreadsheet reports for different domains, as the examples below:

  • 360 Overall Rating, Detailed Ratings and Comments Report
  • Anonymous 360 Status Report
  • Compensation Review Report
  • Competency Ratings Report
  • Succession Planning by Role Report
  • Security Audit Report

These reports fetch data outside the user's target population.

We highly recommend switching over to latest reporting frameworks like Ad Hoc and Online Report Designer
