Select activities

This screen displays a list of activities that may be selected and the options presented will depend on the selection made in Customize step

Self Select Activities


  1. Select activities from the list that account for at least 5% of time
  2. Selected activities will be displayed on the side panel

To assist with the selection of activities the search function may be used


  1. Search for keywords, e.g. investment to narrow down the activity tree
  2. Activities containing the searched for term will be displayed
  3. The search function will also display results where search string appears in description text. Selecting the i icon
  4. Displays the description of the activity

Targeted Activities

Targeted activities are assigned at role level via an Activity Target Setting Workflow Survey


  • A. These assigned activities will appear at this stage as pre selected which cannot be removed
  • B. If enabled it will also be possible to add self selected activities to the pre assigned activities

Note: the survey captures time spent and other activity data for the activities in the lowest level in the activity hierarchy, then the measures (e.g. FTEs involved) are rolled up to the activities/processes higher up

You can come back to this page at any point to unselect the self selected activities or add new activities if enabled

How you work

For each of the selected activities, provide how you carry out the work by answering a series of questions


  1. The questions will show when you open the collapsible bar labelled with an activity name
  2. Click ‘Expand all’ button if you want to see and answer the questions for all activities

    Note: 'Collapse all' to focus on allocated time % across all activities and rollup %'s

  3. If you’d like to remove any activity at this point, go back to the previous 'Select activities' page and remove it from the selected activities list by clicking on the 'x' icon next to each activity

Answer questions about how you work


For each activity, you will be asked to answer up to five questions that capture time you spend on it, involvement, rework and some qualitative feedback

Notes on hours spent per period questions:

You will be asked to provide how much time you spend on an activity each year by answering two compulsory questions: "How frequently do you carry out this activity (e.g. once every week)?" and "Each time, how many hours does it take you to complete it?"

The survey will take the answers to these two questions and return time spent in % automatically. Notice that 'total time allocated %' bar (i.e. sum of time spent % against all individual activities) updates as you answer time spent questions for each activity. Make sure the total % is in a valid range (i.e. close to 100%) when you have entered values for all your selected activities


Check and review if allocated % across activities and activity areas makes sense overall, any adjustments can be made as needed

The survey will check if all compulsory questions have been completed and the allocated time is within the valid time range

When there are one or more unanswered compulsory questions or the total allocated % is outside of the valid range, a message will display identifying what needs to be corrected

The green dot appears for each activity when all the compulsory questions (marked with *) are completed

Other feedback

Optional customizable additional feedback questions appear on this page



All of your responses are displayed on this page and organized into pages (and section)

They can be reviewed before submission


A red error message will appear at the top of this page if there are any missing inputs throughout the survey

This message will specify the pages that have missing responses. It will not be possible to submit the survey until all the compulsory questions have been answered and total allocated time is within the valid range


Note: the missing input flag (the red dot) is also placed next to the page name on the page navigation menu

You can jump to a specific page using the navigation menu at the top to edit your responses

Note that changes to the Individual Working Hours (on the About you page) will affect the % calculation

Click the 'Submit' button to submit the survey
