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.

We're hard at work on some big changes to Reflections, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on what we can improve. If you're open to providing feedback about your experience using Reflections inside Koan, please schedule a 45-minute chat with us for sometime in the next few weeks. You'll get to shape the next version of Reflections, and you'll also get a free Koan t-shirt!

Revamped Search

Other changes:

  • We fixed a bug where OKR stoplight comments would sometimes save incorrectly.
  • We fixed a bug where reflection due dates would sometimes display incorrectly.

Company Goals and Objective Leads

We've added two of our top feature requests: Company Goals and Objective Leads!

Company Goals

With Company Goals, you can now track your company's most important OKRs in a single place. This replaces the previous Curated Goals feature that showed top goals on the company homepage. We've converted all existing curated goals over to company goals so that you don't have to make any adjustments yourselves. For more details, check out our help center article.

Objective Leads

Objectives can now have leads assigned to them, just as Key Results do, allowing more accurate tracking of who's responsible for what in your company.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where cross-team goals would sometimes show up inconsistently in reflections
  • Fixed a bug where reordering Key Results within an Objective would fail
  • Fixed a bug where the same user would appear twice in the OKR Lead/Contributor dropdown
  • Fixed a bug where some users were able to edit other teammates' profile fields
  • Fixed a bug where reflections weren't available for some users

Cross-Team OKRs

We've added the ability to link OKRs to multiple teams, enabling simple cross-team collaboration. When creating an OKR, you'll now see an option to link as many teams as you like. Then sit back and collect confidence data on your most important goals, from everyone working them across the company.

We've built team linking to be completely flexible to how you work. Give it a try and let us know how you like it.

Also in this release:

  • We fixed a bug where goal leads would sometimes show up duplicated.
  • We fixed a small typo in our onboarding screen. Sorry about taht!

Bug Fixes

We've fixed a whole slew of bugs this week to keep your Koan experience fresh and fun!

  • Fixed a bug where Key Result rating text in the flyout was missing line breaks
  • Fixed a header layout issue that occurred while viewing reflections
  • Fixed a bug where registration would sometimes fail when using a Gmail address with dots in it
  • Fixed a bug where reflection reminders set for 12 PM would sometimes show up as 12 AM in the team settings. This did not cause reflection reminders to actually go out at 12 AM!

Change Company Name and Logo

We've heard your requests and have added a way for company administrators to change the company name and logo. Head over to the company settings page to give it a whirl!

Additionally, we've rolled out a fresh new design for all of the company settings pages. Administrators can now get to the settings page from the sidebar on the left anytime!

  • We fixed a bug where reaction counts on reflection responses would sometimes show up as double the actual number.
  • We've fixed a bug where users with non-square avatars would have their avatars appear squished in emails.
