Goal Tree

An overview of the Mooncamp Goal Tree

The Goal Tree View is available for customers in the Pro and Enterprise plan.

Goal Tree View explained

The goal tree view offers the most visual way of displaying goals and OKRs. It can actually be used as a drawing board to map out all your strategic pillars, focus areas, goals, and initiatives in a hierarchical view. It gives a high-level overview of your company’s strategy and each aligned goal is shown as a card with all relevant info in one view. The cards are connected as hierarchical branches and can easily be moved around and realigned via drag and drop. You can zoom in on certain OKR sets or focus areas as well as quickly discover isolated goals and align them correctly.

How to use the Goal Tree View

With the goal tree view you have numerous different ways to conveniently draft and work with your goals and OKRs.

First of all, as you know from the cascade view, you can easily inline-edit your goal title, properties and progress. Via the edit button in the top right corner of a goal card you can access the edit-mode without leaving the page. With one further click on this button, you can open the goal detail page as a modal or further as a whole page.

Using the ellipsis ... also in the upper right corner of a goal card, you have all the functions that usually come with the right-click in the goal explorer, such as deletion or duplication of a goal, creating sub-goals, editing access rights or properties. You can also use the right-click on a goal card to access these functions.

On the goal cards you can see a “+”-button on each side of every card. With these you can add sub-, parent- or sibling-goals of different types into the chosen direction. Once your goal tree has several levels, there is the function to expand or collapse all levels at once. You can find this via the right-click or the ellipsis ... in the upper right corner of a goal card. If you would like to expand or collapse levels one by one, you can use the “Expand next level”-function via the ellipsis ... in the upper right corner of the goal tree view. A further function via the “^1” in the lower right corner of each goal card that contains a sub-goal, you can expand specific goals below each goal card.

This settings menu further contains property and card size settings. It helps you to show or hide properties congruently on all shown goal cards. In general, empty properties will not be shown on an individual goal card, only when they are filled. Also the card width is adjustable to small, medium or large in order to make it more condense or show more content.

The sorting and filter functions work in the same way as you are used to in the cascade view.

Scrolling and Zooming Controls
