There are two ways to add an objective:
Add a key-result to an existing objective
Create your own and move it under a relevant objective
Step1: Go to the "All objectives/Team/Filtered view"
Step2: Drill down to an objective to find your focus goal
Step3: Add a key result to the focussed objective
Step4: Go to "My objectives" dashboard to see your OKR
Step1: Click on "create objective" from centre or right most corner of the screen. Step2: Add your objective, success metric, its start and target. Assign a due-date and hit save. Step3: Once you have created your objective, click on 3 dots menu and select "move objective" Step4: Find your relevant parent objective by searching for your team under the "view teams" section. Step5: Once you locate your parent objective. Click on 3 dots menu and select "paste objective". Your objective starts appearing as a key result to an already existing objective.
An objective shows up in your “My objectives” if you own it. Or else you can see the objective in the “All objectives” view which shows up an entire organisation's objectives and filter accordingly.
One can add links to BI dashboards, google docs, google sheets, JIRA tickets etc as description for relevant objectives.
One can create a "List of initiatives" that needs to get done for the objective. This becomes helpful when you have multiple smaller tasks that need to be done by you.
