Frequently asked questions:
- Can HR Assistants and Tech Admins export the data?
Given the sensitive nature of the information available to export, only HR admins are able to export fully. HR assistants can only export review cycle data as PDFs if they are the owners of that cycle. Otherwise, they cannot export PDFs but are able to pull out some of the basic non-sensitive data out into Excel or CSV. Tech admins are not able to kick off exports.
- I have been waiting for ages and my data is still downloading!
It can take up to 10 minutes for the PDF export to complete if you have a lot of reviews.
- I want to be able to export in the XML format but cannot. Why?
You may have noticed that this option is greyed out. We do this because XML is a pretty technical format and geared towards your IT department. If you want need this option, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to enable it for you.
