Integration Capabilities

Once Microsoft Teams is activated, you'll receive notifications when others update results you care about and can access, update, and follow through on your OKRs--all within Microsoft Teams.

These are the 4 WorkBoard-in-Teams capabilities you will wonder how you ever lived without:

  1. Transparency and Updates: See and update OKRs in chat:WB_MS_Teams_gif.gif

  3. Focus on the Right Things: Set up Calibration & Celebration messages to showcase risks and achievements. On Monday morning, see new risks to results, what’s stale data, and where to focus team energy this week. In one click, see your direct reports’ teams and so you have visibility that drives results predictability. A Friday note prompts feedback on the micro victories for the week, so everyone stays motivated:MS_Teams_gif_3.gif
