OKR visibility

Category: Product.

OKRs enables organizations to perform and manage tasks efficiently. OKR tools basically help teams master their goal-management skills to enhance their professional capability as well as to work collaboratively with team spirit.

While OKRs promote transparency, there are situations where you want OKRs to be restricted. For example, you may have a secret initiative that needs to be restricted to a smaller team of people. Or you may just want to keep an OKR restricted because you want to keep others from getting distracted.

Assuming you have a matrixed structure like this:


Each of the business segments can be considered as departments in Profit.

Profit.co supports the following visibility options for departmental OKRs:

  • Public – Visible to everyone
  • Team -Only Members of the department
  • Access List – Only a restricted named list of employees

Using the access list you can choose the users to whom you want to give access for visibility. Also, you can restrict the users by not giving them visibility access through the access list.

Navigate to OKRs and click on the department name from the left navigation panel. Click on the Create OKR button (Using Forms/Step by Step Guide). In the OKR levels section, select any department and select visibility.
