The Dashboard (continued)
When you first log in to USAP, you will be taken to the Home/Dashboard page with a Navigation bar at the top of the page with three buttons: Home, Performance Management, and Resources. This Navigation bar appears at the top of every page. In the upper right-hand corner is the user profile dropdown, which can be used to logoff or initiate proxy settings (explained later in this training).
The Dashboard enables you to see the status of your performance plan (if applicable), as well as others' plans within your purview, and alerts you of tasks you need to complete. It is organized into two sections: "Tasks Requiring My Attention" and "Quick Links."
Tasks Requiring My Attention: This section provides you with the tasks requiring your attention regarding your performance plan in the system. Under this heading, there is a subheading titled My Active Plans that shows pending tasks for your plans that are active. If you are a Rating or Reviewing Official, there is an additional subheading titled My Employees' Plans that shows pending tasks for your employees' plans.
Quick Links: This section has a subheading titled Performance Plan with quick links to different years of performance plans. If you are a Rating Official, there is also a quick link to View My Employees' Active Plans. This link will take you to the Performance Management page filtered to only view any active plans or plans ready for creation belonging to users for whom you are assigned as the Rating Official.
