# How does the progress calculation Distance from target, as of the check-in date in control KPI works?

Category: OKRs

Profit.co has 4 progress calculation methods and 3 value types for the control KPI key result type.

Why this feature?

This progress calculation method ensures all check-ins are considered, regardless of success. Progress occurs based on proximity to the target value, providing a comprehensive assessment and encouraging continuous improvement.

Distance from target, as of the check-in date

The main difference between the value types is given below,

 VALUE TYPE MAIN FUNCTION At Least The progress won’t update only if the check-in value is below the lower limit. At Most The progress won’t update only if the check-in value is beyond the upper limit.

Scenario 1:

For value type ‘At most’

The progress Calculation formula is,

For example, We have a Key result to Maintain the Cost Per Click at most at \$1

Assuming this scenario, the following table shows how the progress calculation works in the scenario. As said earlier, here the 13th-week progress will be the final Progress.

 Week KPI Control type Start Value Target (\$) Actual Progress % Week 1 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.8 120 Week 2 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100 Week 3 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.5 150 Week 4 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.75 125 Week 5 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.25 175 Week 6 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100 Week 7 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.5 50 Week 8 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.2 80 Week 9 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.35 65 Week 10 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.5 50 Week 11 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.75 25 Week 12 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100

Scenario 2:

For value type ‘At least’

The progress Calculation formula is,

For example, We have a Key result to Publish 5 blog posts every week

Assuming this scenario, the following table shows how the progress calculation works.

 Week KPI Control type Start Value Target (\$) Actual Progress % Week 1 # of blogs At least 0 5 4 80 Week 2 # of blogs At least 0 5 6 120 Week 3 # of blogs At least 0 5 5 100 Week 4 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 5 # of blogs At least 0 5 0 0 Week 6 # of blogs At least 0 5 1 20 Week 7 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 8 # of blogs At least 0 5 4 80 Week 9 # of blogs At least 0 5 7 140 Week 10 # of blogs At least 0 5 5 100 Week 11 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 12 # of blogs At least 0 5 1 20 Week 13 # of blogs At least 0 5 6 120
