Cascade a Key Result: Part 2 - Accept the Cascade

Haven't read Part 1? Head back to "Cascade a Key Result: Part 1 - Sending the Cascade"


If you’re the recipient of a cascade, you’ll receive an email and a notification in WorkBoard asking you to create a cascade (part of an overall outcome). You’ll also be prompted to create the Key Result on the My Objectives page and the My Work page in the This Week view. 

There are different locations where you can accept the cascade.
