Create a Personal OKR

Overview 

WorkBoard makes it easy to create Personal OKRs that are separate from your Team OKRs. 

Use Personal OKRs in Workboard when:

  • You have personal OKRs you’re tracking elsewhere that you want to move to WorkBoard
  • You want to track your career growth with measurable outcomes
  • You own non-Team OKRs at your workplace

Create a Personal Objective

  1. Click on the Objectives tab on the Main Menu
  2. Select Add Personal Objective on the bottom left-hand corner in the side pane

  3. Add your Objective name (statement of intent for the given time period)
  4. Hit Enter on your keyboard

  5. Ensure that all of the Objective fields are filled out correctly for your Objective
    Note: You can always come back and edit them later if necessary.

OKR Owner

The Owner field for Personal Objectives will automatically be assigned to you. You can also create Personal Objectives for people that report to you directly by clicking on the Owner dropdown.
