Add Up Results from Each Quarter


Note: Please review the introduction to Setting Quarterly Key Result Milestones for your Annual Target if you haven't already.

Quite often, the overall annual key result achievement should be a total all quarter intervals. In the example below, the achieved value for Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 need to be totaled to compute the overall annual New Bookings number.  

In this case, when creating the key result, we want to make sure that we select the option to calculate the overall progress of the key result as Adding up results from each quarter. 

The tooltip below highlights that each quarters values are totaled together and we often see this in sales, growth or acquisition focused key results.
