  • Here’s the formula we use in this video to see OKR progress

  • OKRs (objectives and key results) are a framework for setting goals and keeping track of their progress.

  • Notion’s versatility can help you carry out all the planning and tracking of these OKRs.

  • Plus, when goals are all in one place, this creates transparency across your entire company.

  • This video shows you how to build an OKR database from scratch, and add different database views for each team or quarter.

    • You can assign specific key results, timelines, or owners to each objective.

    • You can neatly link your OKR database in other Notion pages for easy access and updates.

Remember, it’s specific to the names of the columns used in this video. If you name columns differently, you’ll have to adjust the formula.

(prop("Current Value")-prop("Initial Value"))/(prop("Target Value")-prop("Initial Value"))
