December 2019 Product Update: New Integrations, Visualizations, and more
Happy Holidays from the entire Koan team! We come with good tidings and cheer, including a big batch of new product features and improvements. Some of our favorites:
With our new Jira integration, you’ll get reminded of all the issues you worked on during the week while filling out your reflection. You can easily add each issue to your reflection as part of the progress, priorities or problems prompts and link those issues to progress against your goals. In combination with our Goal Metrics API, it’s now possible to connect in a deep (but simple!) way the work happening in Jira with your company’s or team’s Objectives and Key Results.
New Goals Visualization and Features
We’ve continued investing to make Koan the best platform for managing your Objectives and Key Results. Now from the Organization Home page, you’ll find the option to switch to an interactive visualization of goal alignment (tree view) so that it’s easy to see how goals cascade in your organization. We’ve also made it easier to your progress with new graphs for Key Results to see how metrics and confidence scores change over time. And finally, we’ve expanded alignment functionality by now making it possible to link an Objective to a parent Key Result.
We launched new functionality to manager users across your organization, including the ability to see how team members count towards your Koan subscription and when they were last inside the platform.
We’ve begun rolling out a new, much improved rich text editor across Koan (try it when editing the description of an Objective or Key Result!). Much work is left to do, but we’re excited about this new direction of a seamless editing experience.
We’ve continued to invest in the core infrastructure of Koan, including an all-new search service that has made searching for users, teams and goals vastly faster for large implementations.
We're excited to look ahead to 2020 and all of the new features we'll be releasing! Watch the changes in real time by signing up for free today.
