Align OKRs easier than ever - set parent or derived OKRs,
linking your productivity metrics to one another. Cross-organization linking is
possible, to allow for full flexibility.
You can align the objectives by adding parent or child
objectives to the current objective. If you would like to align a parent
objective, the new objective should be equal or bigger in the category than the
initial one. If you would like to align a child objective, the new objective
should be equal or lower in category than the initial one.
For example, the communication objective derives from a different organizational objective - the retention objective. In the same time, the communication objective can be set as
parent for another objective, such as a team goal:
After adding the parent / child okr’s, the changes will be
reflected in the objective’s details giving you the possibility to see the alignment in the objective page or in the alignment overview section:
While being in the alignment chart, you can also access the Expand
option to see the details of the other objectives which are linked with
your current objective. For example, the objective, Increasing the employee
retention by 2%, can be expanded because it is included in another
alignment as well.
