Execution Insights Overview

What does it do?

Execution Insights offers the ability for managers to view progress and activities for goals.  Data is broken down by goals on-track, recently updated goals, and engagement activity (cheer, nudge, comments). 


How does it work?

Managers can view goal progress for the organization, their direct reports, and a specific department. To view specific data, managers can add additional filters such as category, department, risk, integration, visibility, and followed objectives. Execution Insights will display the goals on track, recently updated goals, and motivation (engagement). 

Execution Insights will also provide a recommendation on goals that are nudge-worthy and cheer-worthy. From this page, managers can easily engage with employees by providing a comment, nudge, and cheer from the recommended list.

What does each filter do?
