English term or phrase: Help me to understand a sentence
Use this tool for your review of eligibility and other key compensation related data of your direct reports in preparation for the Annual Compensation review.

Should I understand it as "In preparation for the Annual Compensation review, use this tool for your review of eligibility and other key compensation related data of your direct reports" or "Use this tool for your review of eligibility and other key compensation related data of your direct reports that is in preparation for the Annual Compensation review." ?

Thank you!

Asker: Thanks. 我觉得还是不太自信,英语句子联系比较紧密,我感觉 in preparation for...是修饰eligibility and data的。

agree  David Lin: because ‘review of eligibility’ and ‘compensation data’ is part of the Annual Compensation Review. 这样子理解会比较容易明白全句的意思吗?而那个 tool 对两者的 review 会有帮助。
