Track goal progress by understanding each goal's progress bars and statuses.
Goal progress bars
Goal progress bars can be seen in the Goal Explore side panel and the Goals Details page. Users can add quantitative progress and select a goal status when updating goals. Quantitative progress is reflected within the progress bar.
- For all quantitative (#, $, and %) goals, you will always see a progress bar with % to completion.
- For binary goals with at least one key result (OKR format), you will see a progress bar with % to completion. Unless you have set custom goal weighting, each key result will be treated as an equal % towards the goal. For example, if you have a binary goal with three key results, completing one key result will mark the goal 33% completed.
Goal status can be seen on the Goals Explore page under the Status column, the Goal Explore side panel, and the Goals Details page.
Binary goals with no key results will default to a progress percentage of 0% until completed. When updating the goal, users will have the option to set a written update and select the status. Because there is no quantitative measurement, a progress bar will not be visible.
Active goal statuses
When employees update their goals, they are prompted to pick a status to reflect how they believe they are performing on their goal. The statuses are as follows:
- On Track indicates the employee feels good about where the goal is and believes they can accomplish the goal by due date.
- Progressing means that the goal is moving forward, but the employee is not 100% confident they can accomplish everything in the goal. They may, however, be able to get the goal back on track.
- Off Track indicates the employee does not feel good about their progress on the goal and will most likely be unable to accomplish the entire goal.
Goal progress bars
Within the Goals Details page, the progress bar will be highlighted by color to indicate status.
- Green = On Track
- Yellow = Progressing
- Red = Off Track
Ended goal statuses
When an employee is finished working on a goal, they will have two options for marking the goal ended:
An employee might want to mark a goal as complete if they've finished progress on the goal or have made significant progress. A completed goal will have a blue checkmark. Hovering over the status shows the Complete indicator:
An employee might mark a goal as incomplete if they made little to no progress on their goal. An incompleted goal will have a blue 'x'. Hovering over the status shows the Incomplete indicator:
