Resolution

The ratings for each trend information (i.e. Performance, Potential, Competency, Objective) displayed in Historical Matrix Grid Placement Portlet often have different Start Date and End Dates. Hence effective date boundary is considered based on the rating's 'End Date' in order to generate the historical matrix grid placements.

  1. For example, if a user has Performance and Potential Ratings as mentioned below:

  2. The End Dates from both the ratings are considered for the calculation of placements.
