There are 2 ways to create goals for other people in Cascade, and the way you choose will depend on what you’re trying to achieve.
Creating sub goals for other people
Once you’ve created your own set of goals, you might want to add sub goals underneath your own goals, that you assign to other people. For example, you may have a goal to ‘Sell more chickens’, and you now want to create a sub goal of that which is ‘Create our marketing plan for selling more chickens’.
To create sub goals underneath yours, you need to enter the goal hub for your own goal. Once there, click on the ‘+ NEW GOAL’ button towards the bottom of the screen:
When you click the button, the usual goal designer will appear, follow the tabs as usual to create your sub-goal.
Creating the same goal for many people
In some cases, you may even wish to create multiple copies of the same goal for lots of different people simultaneously. For example, you may want to create a goal for everyone in the organization to ‘Attend staff social events: 5’. This would be a perfect candidate for using a functionality called ‘parachuting’. To do this, go to the My Team page, and click on the ‘parachute goal’ button:
When you create goal in this way, the ‘assign’ tab will allow you to add as many recipients for the goal as you like (again, use the search engine function if you can’t find the name of the person you want to create the goal for).
Note that when you parachute a goal, you are creating multiple copies of the same goal – these goals will all be independent and need to tracked separately!
