May 2020 Product Updates: Objective Confidence Index, Refreshed Sidebar, Improved User Management, and more!
We’ve been working hard on new product features to help you become more productive and efficient within Koan. Take a look at some of the recent improvements.
Objective Confidence Index
Within Koan, confidence is a leading indicator of achievement, and our updated Objective Confidence Index feature can help teams detect problems early and navigate uncertainty.
Last month we announced the introduction of our Confidence Index feature to summarize a team's Confidence. We’ve now expanded the Confidence Index feature to provide a similar summary across each objective. This allows anyone to gauge overarching confidence and understand the likelihood of success of efforts that cut across many different aligned goals and teams.
The new Objective Confidence Index allows customers to summarize team members’ confidence for every objective. In addition to the Key Result confidence levels, we now provide a strong leading indicator of whether you'll achieve your most important goals: Objectives. It’s a great way to view confidence trends, leveraging all underlying OKR confidence scores.
We’re excited about the new Objective Confidence to give leaders an honest appraisal of where key objectives stand. Learn more.
Improved Sidebar and Simplified Teams Page
Customer Success within Koan is very important to us, and we want to make sure that everyone has the tools and resources they need to be successful with OKRs within Koan. You’ll notice a new sidebar full of support options, as well as contextual help within the Koan app to aid your team with both Koan and the OKR process.
We’ve also launched our new OKR Resources landing page, which gathers all of our most helpful content for each stage of the OKR process.
Remember, Koan is here to support you throughout your OKR journey. If you have questions or would like to see more resources about a particular topic, please let us know.
You'll also notice a new organization of the All Teams page, which offers a way to see all the teams within the organization, and the associated team members and goals.
Inline Key Result Creation
Last month, we announced a streamlined goal creation experience that allowed users to add new goals directly within their goal list.
Continuing our work for making adding goals into Koan easier, we've added inline creation of Key Results. Now you can get the basic details for your OKRs added all in one fell swoop.
We're continuing to make improvements to the goal creation flow and will have more updates soon. Learn more.
Improved User Management
We’ve made a few improvements to help admins manage users across their organization:
Team invitations: Bulk invites let you set up teams (or your whole organization) faster than ever. Plus, you can invite new admins by email. Learn more.
User editing: Easily edit user profiles for anyone in your organization. Learn more.
Archive users: When employees leave the organization, you can archive users from the "Manage all Users in Koan" settings page. Learn more.
We’re still hard at work to make Koan the simplest way to help your teams stay aligned and productive. If you want to talk about anything we’ve covered in this post or learn more about our platform, feel free to reach out on Intercom, schedule a meeting, or give us a follow on Twitter or LinkedIn.
