Advanced Fields

a) Objective Groups

An Objective Group represents a section under which Objectives are created. There are two types of Objectives Groups.

  • Team Objectives Group

  • Custom Objectives Group

"Objectives Group" is a special field that is beneficial to share an Objective with multiple Teams or Group objectives. Select the Group title from the list, and the Objective will appear in both areas.

b) Type

The type has two options

  • Committed

  • Uncommitted

The selection allows you to change an objective from committed to uncommitted.

c) Start and End Date

These dates are only visible in the details section. These are optional fields.

Linked Items

It is an import section, and you may link features and stories to the Objectives to track the progress automatically. It is better to link a Feature/Epic (Jira) as you can view the linked stories and the incremental progress of the Objectives completion once the teams complete the stories.

Objectives Completion Tracking

The Objectives completion is covered in this article.
