Automatic Goal status updates

The auto-update feature provides accurate progress by automatically updating the progress of the objective or Key Results.

Expected progress is a timeline for achieving the Goal and calculates it by considering the start and end dates.

For example: The Goal start date is April 1 and the end date is April 30. The expected progress is 50% on April 15th.

Actual progress is the current progress that you make while updating your Goal.

Note: You can update the Goal progress even after its end date.

How is your Goal status calculated?

The expected progress is calculated as below.

Expected Progress = (No. of days elapsed since the start date / Total no. of days) X 100

The Goal status is auto-calculated by considering the difference between expected and actual progress.

  • Not started: When the goal is yet to start.
  • Behind: When the difference between expected progress and actual progress is between 16.5% and 33%.
  • At risk: When the actual progress is more than 33% and less than the expected progress.
  • On track: When the actual progress is 16.5% less than the expected progress.
  • Achieved: When the actual progress is greater than or equal to 100%.


    • The expected progress is calculated assuming the goals are completed in a linear manner.
    • The status is not calculated past the goal duration. The last updated status is maintained past the due date of the goal.
