To create an objective, go to the Objectives section and click Add Objective.
This will take you to the Add Objective page.
Fill in the required information:
Name: The name of the objective.
Description: Add a description of the objective.
Owner type: This can be user, team, or organization. Admins can assign objectives to any owner type; reviewers can assign objectives to users or teams they review; employees can only assign objectives to themselves.
Period: The timespan during which the objective is to be completed. You can choose a custom range, a quarter of the year (Q1, Q2, Q3, or Q4), or the entire year.
Parent: specify a parent objective for this new objective to be categorized under. This is helpful for creating sub-objectives within larger objectives.
Set up objective progress range (%): Check this box to customize the progress range for the objective. For example, by default, an objective is labeled At risk if it is between 0% and 40% complete. By dragging the slider, you can adjust the At-risk range to be from 0% to 30%.
In the Key results widget, enter information for the key result(s) of the objective. For each key result, choose a Type. Types include Milestone, Budget, Target, and Target range.
Milestone: The key result can be either reached or not reached. There is no in between.
Budget: The key result has a maximum budget that you will try to stay below. Here you will be prompted to enter a maximum budget and choose the units of measure. You can select currency ($), number (#), or enter a custom unit. In general, the further below that maximum budget value you are when completing the key result, the better.
Target: The key result has a target value to be attained. Here you will be prompted to enter a start value, max target and set the units. By default, you can select percentage (%), number (#), or enter a custom unit. In general, the closer you come to meeting that value, the better.
Target range: The key result has a target value to be attained within a certain margin of error. First, choose the max target. Then choose the range for that target and specify either percentage (%) or number (#).
If your objective has multiple key results, click Add another key result.
When you’re done, click Publish objective. Your objective will now be visible to all users in the organization.
