How do I add & delete objective alignments?
Adding an Alignment
For every objective, there are two types of alignments - Contributes to, Receives contribution from.
Contributes to means, the current objective is contributing to the progress of other objectives that is being aligned.
Receives contribution from means, current objective receives the contribution from the progress percentage of other objectives.
Alignments can be added from Objective details page.
Note that one objective can contribute to only one objective, thus you may come across an error something to this effect. But one objective can receive contribution from multiple different objectives.
Depending on the level of current objective, possible options while contributes to and/or receives contribution from objectives are identified. i.e. a company objective can contribute to only another company objective whereas an individual objective can receive a contribution from only another individual objective.
Also, any alignments that end up in circular dependencies are not allowed to be created.
One can search for an existing objective or create a new one and align it.
Deleting an Alignment
Alignments can be deleted by clicking on 'trash' icon (highlighted below) from Alignment section on Objective Detail page.
