What is Continuous Performance Management?

Continuous Performance Management is a new way of looking at traditional employee review structures. Instead of bi-annual or quarterly reviews, Continuous Performance Management lets you gather data on employee output from a variety of touch points. This results in a more holistic and accurate picture of employee performance, countering the possibility of bias or one-dimensional data points.

      My Customer has CPM but wants to disable it for now. Can they do that through the admin center?

      If so is there a KBA available? Having trouble finding the right resource.

      Thank you
