To get data for your key result from several people, use a Group Results. Ask a question that can be answered with a number, currency value or percentage to gather exact values. Or use a yes or no question, or ratings on a scale, to quantify fuzzier concepts like How productive were you this week? or Do you have all the tools you need to accomplish your work?
Type the question you want to ask, and select the participants you want to survey. You can survey individual users or an entire team.
If you choose Yes/No, you will be asked to set a target, and to calculate key result progress either by:
- Counting the number of Yes responses
- Counting the number of No responses
- Calculating the percentage of Yes responses
- Calculating the percentage of No responses
For example, if you want to achieve the key result 100% of team members complete agile training, ask the team to indicate whether or not they completed their training, set a target of 100%, and track the percentage of users who respond "Yes".
Select the frequency of your Group Result (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly). Selecting a monthly group result for the example above will calculate the number of Yes responses each month.
Use Scale to ask individuals to respond to a question by picking from a pre-specified numerical range. For example, use scale if you would like to ask team members to Rate the effectiveness of a training session. Set the upper limit as the best possible rating and the lower limit as the lowest possible outcome.
Number, Currency, or Percentage
Ask a question that will be answered by a number, currency value or percentage to gather exact values from several people at once.
Select an overall target for the survey, and calculate your key result progress either by:
- Averaging the responses each time data is collected
- Summing all responses collected over time
- Summing the responses each time the data is collected
- Summing responses each time data is collected, then calculating the averaging across the participants
Select the frequency of your survey (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly) to indicate how often you would like data to be collected.
For example, if you want to see the number of Backlog tickets resolved by the team over the quarter, select the option to sum all the data collected over time. Each person will provide their progress on resolved backlog tickets, and Workboard will total your overall progress for the quarter.
