How to Restrict Parent Key Result check-ins?
Profit.co provides an option to restrict the check-ins that we perform on the parent key results.
Why this Feature?
By using this feature we can control parent Key Result level check-in, only the Sub-Key Results progress will override the parent Key Result. This will helps the check-in at parent level Key Result when the sync is enabled and the progress is rolled up from the Sub-KRs to avoid manipulation. On disabling the option to control overrides from settings.
Navigate to Settings → OKRs → Alignments & Dependencies from the left menu.
Disable the toggle for Allow users to override check-ins at the parent key result level. By default, the Check-in Overrides toggle will be enabled.
Before disabling the toggle you’ll be getting the confirmation message to enforce this in the newly created department/team OKRs.
If you enable the toggle we can restrict the parent key result check-ins in the existing Department and Team OKRs. Finally, click Save.
Consider that you have created a new OKR in which the parent key result has two sub-key results.
If you try to make the check-in directly in the Parent Key Result.
You can’t make the check-in and a pop-up message will appear that says, the Check-ins from sub key results are being synced and cannot be overridden.
Also, we can't do the check-in for the existing Department/Team progressed parent key result.
