The percentage in each Matrix Grid Reports cell/placement is calculated based on % = A/B x 100, considering that:

  • A = total number of users present in a cell;
  • B = total number of users in the report, including both rated & unrated users.

Scenarios for different configurations

  • If "Unrated" and "Too new to rate" is disabled:
    It will calculate 100% total from all the cells in the Matrix grid reports. Applicable for huge target population with less number of unrated/too new to rate employees.
  • If either Unrated or Too New to rate is enabled/disabled:
    100% sum is calculated from any available function (Unrated or Too new to rate) + All the cells in the matrix grid. However the Unrated and Too new to rate section does not display their respective section percentages.
  • If Unrated and Too new to rate is Enabled:
    100% total is Calculated from all cells + the number of Employees in the Unrated and Too new to rate section in the form.
  • To enable or disable Too new to rate / Unrated sections, go to Admin Center > Matrix Grid Reports (Performance-Potential or How vs What).

NOTE: It is not possible to remove the percentage from Matrix Grid Reports cells.
