Do you have a goal setting software in place, in your organization? There are certain important features that all goal setting softwares should have. If you wish to know what to look for in a goal setting software, have a look at this article. But beside the features already listed in there, there are a few more, that can really create an enhanced experience when it comes to setting goals effectively.

Here are some of the features that make a lot of difference in the field of goal setting.

Ability to view team goals

Most problems have a solution when you look at them from a bird’s eye view. The ability to view team goals allows managers to view all the goals of their direct reports in one go, instead of painstaking going through an excel sheet or calling their direct reports one by one to know which goals they are pursuing. That gives you the advantage of being able to see all the goals panned out on one screen and which team member is handling which goal.

Ability to create goals

It’s always easy for us to start and pursue a goal, when the steps are made easy. The whole journey need not be difficult. A goal setting system is only useful when it is used regularly by employees. Few of the things that can drive goal creation are an easy to use interface, notifications to check-in easily, and a system that alerts HR and managers to users who do not have active goals.

Different modes of Quantifying

Quantity are measured in different forms by different people. So, a goal setting software should have the ability to handle both quantity and percentage check-ins. This is because it gives users flexibility when they are creating goals for themselves or others. Not all goals are dependent on quantity. In fact, some of them cannot be measured in terms of quantity. For goals like this, the percentage check-in acts as a suitable alternative and does not make it difficult when setting up a goal.

Now that we’ve told you how the above features can make a difference to your goal-setting process, make it easier for your employees to set, track and achieve their goals and yours.
