Enhanced OKR Structure for Better Organization

We’re thrilled to introduce a new and improved OKR structure! With the ability to create two levels of Key Results under each Objective, organizing your plan has never been easier. The OKR view provides a clear hierarchy, and the Matrix is now updated to reflect this improved structure.

Streamlined Focus Dates for Agile Planning

Effortlessly manage your Focus dates with our latest enhancement! Actions now automatically inherit dates from their associated Focus when created, simplifying your planning process. You can also customize individual Action dates by unchecking the “Use Focus Dates” option.

The List view allows batch editing of Actions to enable or disable “Use Focus Dates.”

Exciting Progress Updates

Ambition and Action Progress Bars: Stay on track with the new progress bar for each Ambition and Action, offering a clear visualization of progress. Keep an eye on the small triangle atop the bar for today’s expected progress.

New Progress bars

Grey Progress Icon: Introducing a neutral Grey icon to indicate Action that are not completely specified and thus is lacking the expected progress needed to calculate and indicate the difference between current and expected progress.

Action that has missing dates and cannot have an expected status gets a grey progress icon

Actions Start and Due Date requirement: Actions lacking ALL progress field values are now conveniently ignored in calculations. Ensure full accuracy by filling in both Start Date and Due Date for each Action.

Ambition Sidebar Grouping: Enjoy enhanced organization with the Sidebar’s new grouping options! Choose from By Focus, Key Result, or Assignee groupings to tailor the Sidebar to your needs and easily find Actions.

Default Template Colors: Experience a fresh look with the new darker blue color scheme and subtle shadow enhancements in the blank 1×1 and 5×4 default templates. Existing plans are automatically updated for a seamless transition.
