If your company uses Parent and Child Goals

If your company has goals tied to each other with different owners for objectives and key results, you may find that there's a slightly different user interface for goals. In this case, there are two ways to update a goal. However before you can update a goal you will need to navigate to a Goal profile page and find the "Timeline" section of the goal.

Updating a Child Goals (Key Results) from the Parent Goal

If you want to update a goal and its key results from the parent goal's profile, click into the parent goal and either update the parent goal by typing into the "What's new?" section, updating the status, changing the status of the key results here and posting the update. Updating child goals from the parent goal will allow you to update the progress of multiple child goals at the same time.

Updating a Child Goal from the Goal Profile Page

Another way to update the parent goal is to click individually into each goal and update them.

Step 1: Click on the Key Result.
Key Results are also called Child Goals. Click on this will take you to the Goal profile page.  

Step 2: Update the progress of your goal.

Additional notes: See all of your goals at once by clicking All Goals from the Profile Page under the Goal section.
