New to Mooncamp
The latest features, improvements, and updates
Expanded and collapsed goals are saved
Mooncamp now remembers which goals you expanded or collapsed in the cascade view, so they will appear just the way you left them the next time you open the app.
Dashboard improvements: Deeper insights into your goal progress
New insights have been added to the breakdown report at the bottom of your performance dashboard.
The column “Progress” now shows the expected value and the absolute and relative change (in brackets) compared to the previous period. The data in the column “Status/Confidence distribution” is clickable now, so you can see which goals have which status and how many goals have moved between status segments compared to the last period. Finally, teams are now presented in a nested structure.
Set dedicated icons for all of your goal types
With dedicated icons right next to the title of your goals, it is now easier to quickly scan your goal table and know what the type of each goal is. You can also choose to hide the “Type” column in your table to save some space as you already have the information available.
Are you a workspace admin and want to set icons for your goal types right now? Head over to your settings area and under “Types and rules”, you can now specify the icon and color for each of your goal types.
New icon picker: Assign icons to goals, teams, views, and more
Tired of emojis? 😩 You can now choose to assign icons to your teams, goals, favorites, or custom views.
Extended goal hierarchy rule: Define top-level goals
You can now determine that a goal type cannot be aligned to other goals. To achieve this, simply deselect all goal types in the field “Can be child of” and hit “Save”.
This is useful if you want to make sure that goal types, such as “Strategic Pillar”, are always on top and cannot appear beneath other goal types.

Dashboard improvements: New confidence level report and deltas for goal types
In case you use the confidence level system, we added a new “Overall confidence” report. You can also see the delta to the previous period.
Additionally, you can now see the deltas for all goal types in the “Goals by type” report, along with the total count of all goals.
Dashboard: a new look for progress and confidence insights!
The progress area has been enhanced — areas are now colored according to your chosen thresholds in progress settings, and you can display a trend curve that helps you track and estimate where your progress is heading. Additionally, you can see how many goals are in different progress buckets, and deltas that allow you to compare this distribution to the past.
The confidence area is also new, featuring a similar view allowing you to better track your confidence in achievement over time.
Sorting and aligning of goals via drag and drop 🎉
This was easier said than done – but it’s here, finally: It is now possible to manually sort and realign goals or whole OKR sets by clicking the drag handle to the left and moving it to the desired position:
Dashboard: deeper insights into progress
In the past, the performance dashboard just displayed overall progress of your OKRs.
Now, you can still see your overall progress, but you can also monitor the absolute and relative progress change, as well as the “expected value”, based on your goal settings in the settings area.
Also, by clicking on the ellipsis in the header row, you can now choose the time period you want to compare your current progress to.
Coming in the near future, users can expect many more improvements to the dashboard 🎉
Improved behavior for saving views
Previously, when modifying views, you were prompted to either save or discard your changes before leaving the view.
We made this process smoother by removing the prompt and temporarily saving the view for the user until they decide to either save the changes for themselves (on private views), for everyone (on public views), or reset the changes.
A new way to manage goal cycles
Previously, users with the right to edit goal cycles could create and manage cycles by clicking on the goal cycle name in the view header, which sometimes could be hard to find.
This is why we created a dedicated goal cycles page in the settings area, where users with the corresponding permissions can manage all cycles. It is accessible via the settings area or by clicking the shortcut “Manage cycles” after opening the goal cycle selector in the view header.
Introducing hierarchy rules and required properties 🎉
With hierarchy rules, it is now possible to configure your own OKR system and hierarchy to however you see fit – tailor-made to suit your organization.
This allows you to set rules such as “Key Results can only align to Objectives” or “Objectives can only align to Strategic Pillars”.
For those on our Enterprise plan, you can now mark properties as required fields and also set which measurement types are allowed for each goal type.
This allows you to set rules such as “Key Results should always have an owner” or “Objectives should have only Aggregation as a measurement type”.
Display goal descriptions in cascade views
You can now display goal descriptions in the cascade view as a column by toggling “Description” in the properties tab, adding deeper insights into your goals.
Align goals via drag and drop
You can now realign goals by clicking the drag handle to the left of the goal and dropping it into other goals.
Improved behavior for setting goal parents
Previously, when creating a subgoal on a goal to which you have no write access, the progress of the newly created goal would count towards the progress of the parent goal (if its progress type is set to “Aggregation”). This is no longer possible. However, users with write access to the parent goal can of course always set all subgoals to be contributing to the overall progress.
Also, when changing the alignment of a goal to a parent goal to which you have write access, you are now prompted to decide whether you want the goal to contribute to the parent’s progress or not.
New access rights on goals: “can comment” vs. “can view“
Previously, when a goal’s access was set to “can read”, users could not edit the goal anymore, but they were still able to comment and update it, which was not intuitive.
Now, we renamed the right “can read” to “can comment” (and update), because that is what it actually is.
We also introduced a new right “can view” which is exactly what it says: users can only view the goal without being able to interact with it any further (neither edit nor comment nor update).
Goals can now inherit "last updated" timestamp of child goals
Goals which progress is automatically calculated based on its goal children now inherit the “Last updated” timestamp from the goal child that was most recently updated.
Fixed: goal cycle end dates
Previously, the time of an end date of a goal cycle (e.g. March 31 as the end of Q1) was set to 00:00:00, i.e. March 31st 00:00:01 was counted as being outside of the cycle Q1, showing Q1 as an inactive cycle (although it was still one day left). This is now fixed.
Furthermore, we adjusted existing goal cycle end dates that worked around this issue, as follows:
- All goal cycles ending on a 1st of a month, now end on the last day of the previous month at 23:59:59.
- All goal cycles that do not end on a 1st of a month, keep their date but end at 23:59:59.
Planning spaces and goal drafts are now in beta! 🚀
Previously, planning your next cycle’s goals could get messy as there was no dedicated space to create goal drafts to discuss with your team before publishing them.
Now, you can simply create a new planning space for your team and create goal drafts for the next cycle. Once you are ready and your goals are polished, publish them for everyone to see.
P.S. This feature is currently in beta, so if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, do let us know by dropping us a few lines at [email protected] 🙏
Sort by team and owner
It is now possible to sort your goals by team and all person properties (e.g. “Owner”). You can also combine sorting criteria, e.g. first sorting by team and then by owner.
You can find the sort feature by clicking on the ellipsis (three dots) in the view header next to the “New” button.
