RAR, which stands for Results Action Review, is a regularly scheduled meeting designed to foster quality discussions between a manager, supervisor, or leader (the Reviewer) and their employee or team member (the Reviewee). RARs aim to be concise, direct, and based on factual information. 

The purpose of a RAR is to align the Reviewer and Reviewee, ensuring both parties understand recent events, expectations, and deadlines. Key considerations for RARs include:

  • providing the Reviewer with a clear understanding of the Reviewee's current tasks, challenges, and areas where assistance may be needed.
  • serve as a platform to highlight achievements, address challenges, and prioritize upcoming deliverables. 
  • these meetings occur periodically, typically on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, covering activities from the previous period and outlining expectations for the next period.

Creating a RAR Series


On the WiredUp dashboard, click on the Management option from the ribbon bar.

Select the RAR option. This will open the screen below with Reviewers and Reviewees panel on the left.

Reviewers section shows a list of your existing Reviewers from the existing RAR series created.

Click this button to create a new RAR series. This will open a screen for configuring the new RAR series. An example of the configuration screen is provided on the screenshot below:

On the RAR Configuration screen, you have the view of the names of the Reviewer and Reviewee as well as the option to Change the Reviewer if needed. On the right side of the screen, you can select the Portfolio from the dropdown list for which you will create the RAR for and choose the Date for the first RAR instance. You can also specify the End Date for the RAR series as well. If unspecified, the series will continue indefinitely. In addition, you can choose the RAR Frequency for the RAR meetings and adjust the Number of Historic RARs from the previous months available for quick access. Specify which RAR Sections should be included in the RAR series and indicate whether actions from other sources should be included for review in the Include Actions From section.

Reviewees section shows a list of your existing Reviewees from any of the existing RAR series created.

Note: After the End date, the system will not create another RAR instance. Therefore, the date entered on the End Date field will be the last date that the RAR instance from the series will take place.

In addition to the RAR header, the RAR contains various area sections that enable the user to pull and view specific information from within WiredUp for ease of reference:

Note: These pages on the RAR configuration are shown based on the selection shown 4 under RAR headers

The Results section serves as the Summary page, categorized by the Overview items configured within Administration>Overview Items. Each category appears within this section, and completion of each is optional.


To add an item, simply type in the + Add field. To delete an item, clear the text. You can reorder items by dragging them up or down to the desired location.

Highlights encompass any positive outcomes or points to note that the Reviewee wishes to emphasize from the previous period. Conversely, Lowlights pertain to negative aspects or issues warranting discussion or attention. Emerging Issues refer to potential concerns or threats to performance that have surfaced. Priority Deliverables outline specific tasks or actions that must be completed in the upcoming period. Additionally, the Reviewee may specify areas where they require assistance from the Reviewer on the You can help by option, detailing how the Reviewer can offer support.
