Ally's Weighted Objectives feature allows objective owners and creators to assign specific weights to define how scoring and progress roll up to parent Objectives. 

If your organization has Weighted Objectives enabled you may see objective weights displayed like this:

  • In this example, the Key Result Deliver API v2 has a weight of 2x. This means it will account for twice the progress of it sibling Key Results. Since there are three Key Results, it will account for 66% of the parent Objective progress instead of the normal 33% 
  • The Key Result Ship mobile app for Android is also is weighted 0x. This means none of its progress will be rolled up to the parent Objective

Below, we can see that the parent Objective Deliver product innovations currently displays 50% progress based on the weighted progress of its Key Results.

The same Objective would otherwise have 33% without the weighting.

How to add weights

Weights can be set or edited from the action dropdown by selecting "Weight" and then choosing your appropriate weight.

You also can access weighting from the edit page.

If you have an enterprise subscription and would like to have this enabled for your organization please have an account admin reach out to [email protected] with the request.
