Draw Attention to Key Results with Confidence Ratings


WorkBoard's objective RAG colors highlight whether a Key Result is tracking according to plan based on current course and speed, taking progress to date and time remaining into consideration.

With Confidence Ratings, you can draw attention to hidden risks or opportunities earlier in the quarter. These ratings tap into a more subjective perspective of trajectory based on institutional knowledge of risks and recovery initiatives.

Note: In order to add a Confidence Rating to a Key Result, you must first enable this feature. Reach out to your WorkBoard Customer Success Manager for assistance.
