It may be tempting to just change the timeframe of an OKR from one quarter to the next if you need more time for it.

What we recommend, however, is taking a moment to reflect on the OKR and closing the OKR instead, and creating a new OKR based on those learning. What this does is force you to reflect on the past quarter, and understand how you can make better decisions for the future. That way, rather than recycling the same OKR, which can feel less inspiring or motivating, you can acknowledge the progress you've made.

ℹ️ Premium and Supreme only

Before closing the OKR, consider cloning your OKR first. That way you use your previous OKR as a skeleton or template before you continue with creating a new one. It's important to note that the clone OKR won't include your previous progress.

* NOTE: You must have a future timeframe set up in order to clone an OKR.
