Export OKRs to Excel

There are occasions when one needs to share the progress on OKRs outside of Gtmhub. It could be a meeting in a conference room, email to an investor or another stakeholder. To assist our users with this use case, we’ve introduced the ability to export OKRs to Excel (or spreadsheet format, to be more precise).

Resolving schema changes with Gtmhub

Gtmhub is an OKR software which connects to over 100 applications and data stores, such as JIRA, Salesforce or MySQL. We use this data to automatically track and update key results – such as a number of open bugs or average deal size. In this article, we will introduce a new tool, which helps you keep everything working when the data schema changes.

Inline editing: Working with your OKRs got even simpler

As we keep adding clients, the amount of data we can gather on how people use Gtmhub keeps increasing. One thing we keep a keen eye on is how people work with OKRs on a day-to-day basis. One of the most used buttons in Gtmhub is the Edit objective and after we analyzed it, we’ve realized we can remove that step in most of the scenarios – making Gtmhub even more fluid.

Managing OKR related tasks

Objective is what we want to accomplish. Key result is how we measure success. Today, in Gtmhub we introduce Tasks – what will we do about it. Tasks are a new type of custom field that can be defined for OKRs. In this post, we’ll show how to set up tasks and how to use them.

Introducing Gtmhub Pulse

When a team introduces OKRs, one thing that happens very quickly is a full information overload. Transparency is great, but even teams of medium size will quickly generate 40-50 objectives and over 100 key results. While it is relatively simple to find out what Joe from HR is doing, having a quick view of the information most important to each individual can be challenging.

OKR activity feed improvements: Notifications & mentions

The latest updates to Gtmhub bring improvements to the activity feeds. First, from now on every time someone posts a comment, owner of the objective will receive an email notification. This also applies to employees and teams; for example, if you leave feedback for a colleague, she will be notified as soon as comment has been posted.

Customize your OKR process

Customize your OKR process

There is one thing we’ve learned while helping different companies adopt OKRs – it’s always a little bit different. While the basic methodology is always more or less the same, the size, stage, industry and culture of different companies demand from the product to adapt.

OKR initiatives

Organizing OKRs into initiatives and areas

With the latest release of Gtmhub, we now support tags for Objectives. While, alignment remains the main way to organize and make sense of OKRs within an organization, we have found that often secondary taxonomy is needed. Our clients have identified two main use cases for tags: initiatives and areas.

OKR confidence level setting

One of the key ideas of OKRs is communication around progress. So far, Gtmhub has been automatically calculating progress and juxtaposing it with the time passed in order to determine how well an objective is progressing. Many times, however, there are circumstances that are beyond this simple approach.

Key results with soft and hard deadlines

A customer recently told us following case: “My objectives are all product related and timing is everything. For this quarter I need to improve the user engagement and to do that I need to release 3 features, but it won’t matter a thing if I don’t hit my deadlines – and those are all before the end of the quarter.”

When timing matters: Time framed KRs

Sometimes just setting a goal and metrics, an objective and key results it’s not enough. Sometimes timing matters – especially if your OKRs implementation is flavored with a pinch of project management. So, here come the “Time framed KRs”.

Looking at OKRs from people perspective

There are two ways to use OKRs. From one side, we can look at the objectives and how well are they being executed. On the other side, we can look at people and teams, and see how well are they executing against these objectives. With the latest updates, Gtmhub is delivering the people centric perspective on the OKRs.

Usability metrics, OKRs and transparency

Measuring the usability and the overall user experience wasn’t very popular for many years, mostly because it requires a lot of resources – suitable facility, time, evaluators etc. Fortunately in the last few years the interest in the usability tests even with the small vendors increased. There are now online services that would do the tests for you and will present you the final data.

Creating stunning insights just got a whole lot easier

Gtmhub allows users to create custom insights. In a nutshell, with custom insights you can slice and dice all the data in Gtmhub and then visualize it within Gtmhub insightboards. You can learn how to make new insights in our documentation. Today, however, we released a big improvement that helps you make stunning insights even if HTML is not your thing

The legend is born: Cross-system metrics

One of the initial (maybe the first?) very fundamental ideas behind the Gtmhub platform was to provide easy way to get valuable insights from all of the business systems across the company by sourcing, cleaning and matching the data. While this may sound vague or too general I want to stress on “all business systems”.

My first experience with the Gtmhub's insight platform

Gtmhub provides a platform to develop custom insights – from the algorithm that crunches the data to the UI (insight widgets we call them). The insight engine is powered by the R language which didn’t mean anything to me until soon. However, I decided to do a test run on our platform to see what could kind of common user do with it.
