Manage Calibration Sessions

A Calibration Session defines the timeframe the session is applicable to, as well as the owner, participants and subjects of the session. You can have multiple active sessions.
  • Tip! Each Calibration Session generally groups employees with a similar background, allowing for a meaningful comparison.
  • From here you can access the main tabs: Basic Info - People - Validation
  • You will be notified if ""This session has already been activated and is currently in progress.""
