What is the use of Objective Status Propagation ?
Profit.co provides a feature called Objective Status Propagation that determines the objective's status based on the key result progress.
Why this feature?
- This feature allows you to determine the status of the objective based on the key result progress.
- This feature allows the status and progress of underlying Key Results to automatically influence and update the status of the parent Objective.
- Also by using this feature the Objective Progress color code will change.
Navigate to Settings → OKRs → Authoring from the left navigation panel. On the Authoring page, select the Statuses tab. Under this tab, you can find information about Objective/Parent KR Status Propagation, including Confidence %, Status Name, and Color Code.
You can also add new statuses according to your preferences by clicking the + Create status icon.
You can Enable/Disable them and can also Edit them according to your preferences.
Consider an Objective with three Key results.
The status of the Key Result is given below according to the color codes,
- 1st Key Result → In Trouble
- 2nd Key result → At Risk
- 3rd Key result → On Track
Hence, the Objective status is At Risk depending on the Key Result progress.
If you disable any of the Objective/Parent KR Status Propagations, the Key Result with the disabled status will not be considered for the progress.
Consider disabling the On Track status and if you perform a check-in, the Objective status will be In Trouble by not considering the On Track Key Result’s progress.
