When creating a Key Result you can make it binary by having a starting value of 0 and a target value of 1. You can use this to communicate yes/no, done/not done, or true/false.

Please do note that binary Key Results can be demotivating to work on. The best Key Results enable you to progress towards a target.

Let's take the example of a Key Result to Get Blog into the top 5 results on Google. Instead of a binary KR, you could say, for example, that 1 is the target value and 20 is the start value. That way, if your blog post ranks at position 5, you would be at around 70% progress.
