PerformanceManager documents may be downloaded for offline use in situations when Internet access is unavailable (disconnected use). The offline feature is ideal for users that require an ability to work on a document when Internet access is not readily available (e.g. while traveling on a plane, etc). The offline feature enables a disconnected user to work and save document edits until Internet access becomes available, at which point, the user simply uploads the document changes to the PerformanceManager system.


To work on a downloaded (offline) document, you will need Microsoft Word.
