Weighted goals allow goal owners to customize and communicate the relative importance of each key result. Owners can customize how much each child impacts its parents' progress across multiple levels.
Applying Custom Weighting After Publishing a Goal
Goal owners will have the opportunity to set custom weighting immediately after their goal has been published. Please note, custom weighting is only available for goals with a binary parent.
Step 1: Publish your goal.
Step 2: The key results will be weighted equally by default. To edit, select "Edit weights."
Step 3: Insert the weight distribution for each goal under the Weight column on the right-hand side.
After setting the desired weight for a specific key result, the "Distribute remaining" button allows you to distribute quickly and evenly to all other key results. For example, the goal owner below, Andrea, is certain she wants to have her "Hire 1 assistant to the DIrector of BizOps" key result to be weighed at 20%, with the rest of the percent weights to be measured evenly across the rest of her key results.
Here, she will enter 20% for her desired key result and leave all other fields blank. Then, she will select "Distribute remaining."
This will distribute the remaining 80% evenly across key results.
Applying Custom Weighting from the Goals Explorer
Goal owners can edit custom weights directly from the Explorer page. To do this:
Step 1: Select Goals on the discovery navigation.
Step 2: Find and click on the goal you would like to edit.
Step 3: Within the right-hand context panel, select "Edit weights."
This will open the same editing weights modal shown above. Here, you can make your edits and save.
