Groups in PerformYard are collections of employees with common organizational characteristics. Groups are used in a few ways as shortcuts to executing processes for multiple, similar people:

  • To assign review cycles to a common group
  • To assign a specific status report (set of questions/frequency)
  • To assign the same goal to multiple people


To manage groups, navigate to the Groups link within the Administration menu.


To create a new group, click Add Group and provide a name for your new group.
