2473164 - How to define matrix grid custom weights in Calibration Template?


Where in Calibration Template you can configure the weights where the ratings in Employee Profile come from?


SuccessFactors Calibration

SuccessFactors Succession Management Matrix Grid Reports

Reproducing the Issue

Admin Center > Calibration > Manage Calibration Templates > Select a template > Go to "Data" tab.


  • Weight definition in Succession Matrix Grid reports and Calibration is defined separately.


Under the Employee Profile Section, you will see there is an option to expand "Set distribution guideline (optional)".

After you expand, you will see the fields to set custom weights. This acts the same way as custom weights in Admin Center Succession > Matrid Grid Reports: Performance - Potential/How vs What

If the fields in Calibration template "Set distribution guideline (optional)" is empty, it will distribute weights equally (e.g.33.3%, 33.3%, 33.3%) for a 3 point scale.

Please be mindful that once a Calibration Session is finalized, any changes in the weights/template won't take effect in the finalized sessions unless the Session is not yet finalized. Otherwise, you can only adapt/change the configuration in the Matrix Grid settings.
