Goal Tracker App Template
The importance of setting goals is well known to successful organizations. They hold you accountable, tell you what you truly want, and help propel you forward. Whether the goals are professional or personal, many of us simply state our goals but fail to set deadlines and track our progress toward achieving them.
The Goal Tracker app is a comprehensive solution that lets you set up your team and individual goals in Microsoft Teams, update and share the progress of goals, and integrate seamlessly with existing channels and teams.
As a team member, this app template can be utilized to set your personal goals, update progress, save notes directly from Teams (or any other application as a link), praises that you got for your work, or anything else relevant for any review! As a manager, you can set your team's goals in addition to your personal goals. Team members can align their personal goals to team goals. A simple bot command can help you to view the progress against your team goals. Team goal progress is automatically updated according to the updates on personal goals by your team members. Also, the app notifies your entire team to update progress as per the frequency selected, and maintains the history of your goals up to 1 year.
With the Goal Tracker app in Microsoft Teams, all users can:
- Set up personal goals
