Dashboard: deeper insights into progress

Improvement
Goals & OKRs

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

Improvement
Goals & OKRs

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

Feature
Goals & OKRs

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.

Better Cycles management

Introducing hierarchy rules and required properties 🎉

Feature
Goals & OKRs

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”.

To learn more about hierarchy rules and required properties, we highly recommend reading our help center article for a more in-depth guide on rules for Goals and OKRs. (English & German)

Align goals via drag and drop

Improvement
Goals & OKRs

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

Improvement
Goals & OKRs

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.

Better parent alignment

New access rights on goals: “can comment” vs. “can view“

Feature
Goals & OKRs

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

Feature
Goals & OKRs

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.

Inherited last updated timestamp

Fixed: goal cycle end dates

Fix
Goals & OKRs

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! 🚀

Feature
Goals & OKRs

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.

We recommend reading our help center article for a more in-depth guide on planning spaces. (English & German)

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] 🙏

You can find the sort feature by clicking on the ellipsis (three dots) in the view header next to the “New” button.

Disabling automated status updates on aggregated goals

Feature
Goals & OKRs

Per default, the status of goals with progress type “Aggregation” is automatically updated based on the progress of its subitems.

If you want to control the status of these types of goals and set the status manually, you can now choose to disable automated status updates.

Apart from the update window, you can also find the setting to disable or enable automated status updates by clicking on the ellipis in the upper right corner of the goal detail page.

Sort data on dashboards

Feature
Goals & OKRs

It is now possible to sort the columns on the Goals dashboard. For instance, this can be useful if you want to show employees from a certain team one below the other or order employees based on when they last updated a goal.

Attach comments to goal updates

Feature
Goals & OKRs
Check-ins

Previously, you could update multiple goals right from your check-in, but were not able to attach comments to specific goal updates. This prevented users from displaying certain comments on the respective goal detail page when they used the check-in feature to update their goals in bulk. Now, comments are directly attached to specific updates.

November 8, 2021

Default views

Feature
Goals & OKRs

If you create your first custom view on any page, the previous view is now saved as “Default view” and can also be found in the view list. This change aims at having one consistent default view across all teams, even if some teams decide to create a custom view for themselves. Of course, default views can still be deleted just like any other views.
