Empower your team with better CSV exports and more Reflection Reactions

We've expanded our CSV export option to allow for all members of a team to export their visible goals (public goals and their own team's private goals).

And so that your team can 🔥feedback and celebrate each other's wins more easily, we've added an additional emoji to the reaction options inside of the reflections:

We've also decreased loading time and improved performance across the app for a better user experience.

Jira Integration

With our new Jira integration, you’ll get reminded of all the issues you worked on during the week while filling out your reflection. You can easily add each issue to your reflection as part of the progress, priorities or problems prompts and link those issues to progress against your goals. In combination with our Goal Metrics API, it’s now possible to connect in a deep (but simple!) way the work happening in Jira with your company’s or team’s Objectives and Key Results.

Better align your goals with Tree View and see a full roster of your users

We've made a few changes that will help your team get and stay aligned easier in the app. First, you'll be able to link Objectives to parent Key Results, so you can create a hierarchy bespoke to your process.

Second, to help your team see how your goals align from the top down, we've added a new tree view of your goals so you can see all of the work being done towards a company level goal:

Plus, organization admins can now view a table of all members in Koan. This table includes details about each member's

  • Billing status
  • Last activity in Koan
  • Number of team memberships

Admins can also filter users by billing status, gaining visibility into how many members in their organization are billable.

Access this new table from the org settings page via the "Manage all Users in Koan" options.

Plus, we've improved out search functionality so that it's faster and easier to find the people and teams you need.

More control of your data with OKR exports and confidence graphs

Admins in your app can now export your OKR data to CSV. Exports include:

  • Current confidence scores
  • Due and started dates
  • The teams that are working on it
  • Metrics on the Key result

You can access the export from the All Goals page:

Inside of the app, you'll also be able to better track your team's confidence over time with detailed confidence graphs:

As well as seeing the metric change over time with metric graphs:

Plus, we're working on providing a smoother mobile experience by reducing the bundle size of the app to improve load times while on iOS and Android. More improvements to the mobile experience are coming soon as well!

Better notifications, more confidence, and more

  • You can now opt-out of notification emails when your team comments or reacts to your reflection
  • Get faster context on your teammates' reflections: the "reflection submitted" email notification now includes a brief summary of their week
  • We fixed a bug that kept confidence history from loading when viewing the company's "all goals" page
  • You can now add a "contributors" column to the OKR table view

Key Result Discussions and Revamped Mission/Vision Editing

Now you can have full discussions on your Key Results, with our new posting and commenting features. Just open up any Key Result and click the Add Post button in the Discussion tab.

Once you've posted, you and your coworkers will be able to have rich, fruitful discussions about anything you desire in the comments section.

We've also revamped the editing experience for your company's mission and vision. Your greatest ambitions have never looked bolder!

Some other great features:

  • We've added an optional column to the OKR table list that shows the latest update from the KR's lead. You'll never not get the last word with this great new column!
  • We added the South African Rand to our growing list of supported currency symbols.

We've also fixed a ton of bugs. Some fan favorites:

  • Fixed a bug where the Include Subteams dropdown in the OKR table only showed immediate subteams rather than subteams several levels down in the hierarchy.
  • The OKR creation button on team pages now shows up much larger, and with clear text, if your screen is wide enough. Never wonder what that "+" button does again, unless you're on a small screen.
  • Fixed a bug where newly created OKRs showed up at the top of the list rather than the bottom.
  • Fixed a bug where OKRs that belong to several teams would show up, well, several times in the OKR table list if several of those teams were selected.

OKR Insights

Get a bird's eye view of what's on track and what isn't in your entire department with the new OKR Insights bar. On any team OKR page, just click the Show Insights button at the top and you'll see a breakdown of how your work is tracking across any number of teams.

Other changes:

  • Added the Status column as a default column in the OKR table view. Welcome to the big leagues, Status Column!
  • Fixed a bug where a Key Result's metric could not be unset once set.
  • Fixed a bug where Company Goals on the Company Page sometimes showed as having "+0" teams associated.
  • Fixed a bug where email notifications about comment replies didn't contain a link back to the comment thread. Whoops.

Organizational Visibility

Manage your whole department's OKRs in one place with the new subteam selector on your team's OKRs page. On the page, you'll be able to pull in OKRs from any subteam of your team, allowing you to sort and filter all in one place.

New OKR Table View

We've rolled out a revamped OKR table view with a fresh new look and customizable columns. Just head over to your team's OKRs page and click the switcher in the top right (in the snazzy new toolbar!) to see the table view.

  • We've added an administrator permission toggle to allow anyone in the company to assign goals to any team. Previously, goal assignment was limited just to teams that the user was part of.
  • We've added the ability for company administrators to reorder Company Goals on the Company Page via drag-and-drop.

Easier Team Navigation

We've added a way to get a sense of where a team fits into your company's org chart at a glance. On any team's public page (accessible through Search), you'll now see a list of associated teams on the right side of the page.
