Alternative views of atlas goals

Jesse Redl May 9, 2023

We are finding the table structure of atlas goals limiting within our organization. For example a divisional lead has several ORK's that they are responsible for. 

There isn't an easy way to see this OKR and the cascade of OKRs within the current tool. We're finding that our leads are exporting Goals to Google sheets and even mind maps to show the hierarchy and getting a complete picture. 

Is there anything in flight with the team that provides an alternative view? 


Does anyone have alternatives to seeing the "full picture"

Hi @Jesse Redl

if you consider third-party alternative apps from the Atlassian Marketplace, you may have a look at OKR Board for Jira (I am part of the team behind the app). 

With OKR Board for Jira you can reproduce the expected structure you mention in the post: O->KR->O->KR.

It may look like on the screenshot below:

As our app is fully integrated with Jira, you can link Strategy (OKRs) with Execution (Projects in Jira) to track progress, build custom reports, and make check-ins.

F.e. here is custom report dashboard, which you can create yourself for any necessary Objectives.

You may schedule a demo on our app page if you would like to learn more about the OKR structure and how it can be customized to your needs.

Hi @Jesse Redl 

If you navigate to the Goals directory you can view the cascading goals and also filter by status, owner, tag, etc. See the screenshot below. You can then embed that elsewhere or export it.

Are you looking for something else?

In total organizational size we are just under 1000 employees worldwide right now. We've chosen atlas as our OKR alignment tool partly because how cleanly it integrates into the existing atlassian suite of products. 

An example use case of where the default view just doesn't scale is from our VP of growth. Hey wants a birds eye picture of what he has been assigned (increasing paying customers). 

Objectives have either been cascaded up to this key result and others laddered down to various teams. Those objectives in turn have key results and associated projects. 

This has lead to him creating his own view of the yearly picture (and updating it based upon quarterly planning / completions)

Others are exporting the data into google sheets or other visualization tools to do this.
