You define how often you want to see results by setting the pace for how your Company will be working to achieve its goals. OKRs work with a series of timeframes known as cadences, that interact with each other to create a rhythm of continuous and focused progress. You have a high level goal with a longer horizon that can only be accomplished through the execution of smaller goals with a shorter horizon.

We added cadences to Perdoo so that you no longer have to create a new timeframe for each new period. If you work with atypical cadences (ie. financial year) please check out how to create custom cadences instead.

Examples of cadences:

  • 3 year
  • Annual
  • Quarterly
  • Monthly

Examples of timeframes:

  • 2018 -2020
  • 2019 (Jan 1, 2019 - Dec 31, 2019)
  • Q1 (January 1, 2019 - March 31, 2019)
  • July (July 1, 2019 - July 31, 2019)

Cadences & timeframes:

  • 3 year - 2018 -2020
  • Annual - 2019
  • Quarterly - Q1 2019¬†
  • Monthly - July

To add a standard cadence:

  1. Click on Roadmap
  2. Click on Add cadence
  3. Select Type 
  4. Press Submit

*Note, if you have existing timeframes that match this cadence, you can check the box "Use existing Timeframes" to integrate these into the cadence (make sure you select all timeframes, past and present).
