Enable/disable aligned Objectives

With aligned Objectives enabled, 15Five users can choose to align their objectives with a larger department or company objective; this creates a parent-child relationship. If "Enable automatic roll-up" is on, the status of a user's objective can directly impact the progress of the parent objective. Aligning objectives creates a cohesive effort to achieve a company goal.

How are the percentages of Child/Aligned Objectives calculated towards the company-wide Objective? Let's say you have one company-wide objective, with one key result, and four child objectives owned by various team members, impacting its progress. Each child objective/team member would contribute to 20% of the completion of the company-wide objective, and the key result itself would also contribute 20% to the total completion.
