In this Bridge Performance release (Oct 01), We have introduced a new field to individual goals called “Progress Metric.” Some fields in Goals are required in order to be saved.
Goal Progress Metric
We have introduced a new field to individual goals called “Progress Metric.” The progress metric will allow a user to specify the target value that should be achieved as well as a current value. The current value can then be updated periodically by the user to reflect the overall progress in attaining the objective.
Users will see a few options when setting the progress metric:
- Completed subtasks - completion of each goal subtask will determine overall goal completion (e.g. 2 of 4 subtasks complete = 50% complete)
- Currency - to measure monetary goals; the user can specify the currency denomination in the type field
- Percentage - for goals where the user would like to more generally specify goal completion via the percentage that has been completed
- Numeric - for goals where a user needs to achieve a certain number
The progress bar for goals will now be filled out based on the values from the progress metric.
Note: this metric is only for individual goals and does not apply to a team or company goals
Required Goal Fields
Some fields in Goals are required in order to be saved.
- Due date
- Progress metric
- Due date
The intention behind making these fields required is to ensure that each goal contains the most critical data needed for tracking purposes. Additionally, this will help improve reporting for goals and eliminate having a large number of “untitled goals” lingering around.
