You may have key results and metrics that don't contribute or get counted in overall progress measurement. Exclude a key result or metric from objective progress calculations in these situations:
- You want to track the data but it isn't a real factor in progress or achievement of the objective
- A key result that seemed relevant when you set it is no longer important
- You want to weigh overall progress on a single or specific key results under the objective
To exclude a key result, edit the objective by clicking the three-dot icon (kebab menu) on the Objective Detail page or in one of the list views. Select Edit from the kebab menu. Click to the second page of the objective editor and pick the key result you want to update from the thumbnails. When you pick the key result, check the Exclude from goal progress box at the bottom of the window.
You can also delete a key result entirely by clicking the X on the thumbnail -- hover over the name.
When you exclude a key result from progress, the key result continues to be displayed in the Objective Detail view but is not displayed in the quick view of key results on the list pages (the leader board under heatmap for example).
