Clone an objective

There are times when we have objectives that might carry over to additional quarters, but we still want to keep the progress tracked by quarter. In cases like these, you can clone the objective so you can easily place it in a new timeframe or adjust key results without losing previous progress. Cloning an objective allows you to close, archive, or delete the previous objective and start again with as little or as much of the same information as you'd like.

In this article, you will learn...
