Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I (the admin) disable cascading goals?
A: Cascading goals cannot be disabled by Lattice admins. To disable cascading goals, please reach out to the Customer Care Team through chat or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: What happens to cascading goals if the feature is disabled in your account? Will the relationship between aligned goals remain intact?
A: All currently cascaded goals will remain in their current state. Only future goals will not be cascaded, you will not be able to align parent and child goals. Once disabled, your organization cannot access the Tree view in the Goals Explore.
Q: How is progress calculated with Cascading Goals enabled?
A: Cascading goals, if enabled, allows users to align child objectives to parent objectives. In these cases, the progress will work as follows:
Example 1: Objective 1 > Objective 2 > Key result 1
- Key results automatically add progress to objectives.
- Key result 1 (Eng KR 1) will flow into Objective 2 (Dept Eng Obj).
- Objective 2 (Dept Eng Obj) will flow into Objective 1 (Company Obj 1)
