Calculation periods

Calculation period contains all the data required to calculate the KPI in the specified month:

  • month for which calculation should be made;
  • list of persons who are covered by the calcilation period;
  • KPI pattern, on the basis of which it is calculated;
  • a list of performance indicators with their weights;
  • who will put down actual values of indicators (estimates), and what contribution to the overall performance makes each of them;
  • data on wages, the formula of its calculation, the amount of the prepayment, allowable surcharges and deductions.

One employee may have several different calculation periods in one month. Efficiency of person in each calculation period is calculated separately. Sometimes within the calculation period it is not necessarily to put down all the marks — in the case of vacation or illness of the employee. Therefore, in the settings of period there is an option Who can disable marks. Also possible to enable option Do not truncate kpi, which will allow to calculate the real effectiveness of the employee, without limitations, specified in the KPI plugin settings.

Option Do not copy automatically prohibit copying period to the next month by task, copying all periods. It is necessary to create a calculation period, which will be used only once.

  • Closed - in the list is displayed with a pink background. In this state filled in marks, the overall efficiency and the amount of wages stabilized and can not be changed. It is possible to open a calculation period back.
