What is Delegation?

Occasionally when you are using OKRs to collaborate with other people within your organization, you would like more than a single person to make an update to an OKR. With Ally's Delegation option, you can assign another individual to check in on OKRs that are not owned by them.

Delegation Example

If your organization has Objective Delegation enabled you may come across objectives that look like this.

The above is an example where Reed David is the objective owner but has set Phil S as the delegate to keep it updated. 

The delegate will have the same abilities on the objective as the owner with the exception that the delegate will not be able to change the objective's ownership.

As a delegate a user will also gain a new dashboard view that is specific to delegated objectives.

When users are listed as a delegate, they will receive notification to check-in as if they were the owner themselves. The original owner may also elect to receive the notification, this is configured on as objective by objective basis.

Adding a Delegation to an Objective

Users may add a delegate to an objective when creating or editing an objective. 

  1. Click on "Delegated to"

2. Choose the individual who will become the delegate. 

3. Then choose from the options below: Delegate any key results below owned by the objective owner AND Elect to have the original owner receive notifications. 

 4. The user will then be listed as a delegate and will receive the new dashboard upon saving. 

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.
