I’ve been studying your OKR app, and generally I’m a proponent of OKR’s and how to manage them as comprehensively as possible in an app.
I’m curious if you guys would consider as you build out this App the ability to bring in some real data into the “KR’s” so they can update dynamically. I notice your proposed use of KR’s progress is to enter that manually. I see a lot of other apps, Coda among others with their OKR template, doing the same.
This strikes me as a bit non-dynamic. As the Objective progresses, say over the space of a quarter, the KR must be updated manually by the team so the progress just “moves along” when viewed in the KR entity. I think it would be great if there were some automations, or maybe formulas and roll ups coupled with some vizidrop data perhaps? that could update these fields dynamically, and via some updating mechanism, such as an automatic annotation in comments or the activity string. Or maybe an associated “update” entity? For example, you have the OKR of “move run rate from $2k to $8k month. Would you currently just go into the Key Result every few weeks and change the number by hand? This is something that strikes me as prime for automation.
Curious what you guys think about this, and thanks for listening!
