What are Goals
Any kind of objective, OKR, or project can be tracked with Goals.
We created goals to make it easy for teams to define objectives, make everyone in the team aware of them and make it easy to connect daily tasks to larger objectives.
You can use Goals to track OKR's (Objectives & Key results), but it is not necessary to be tied to any particular goal framework.
Each check-in task can be associated to a goal simply by including the goal tag, and anyone who works on a task tagged with a goal, will be recorded as a contributor.
