Close and assess an objective

If your objective's end date has passed and you no longer want it to appear as 'Past due', you can close and assess your objective. You can also close an objective that is no longer relevant at a given time—aka closing an unfinished objective.

Closing an objective does not mark the objective as complete. It holds the last known status, including the overall %, and updates its status as 'Closed'. Key result progress will also be saved using the last known value. Closed objectives will still appear under the Current, Past, and Future objectives filters. If your key results are all complete and the objective is showing 100% completed, you will then want to close the objective so that no other edits can be made.



After a person closes an objective they own, the objective will appear on their Check-in for
one additional Check-in period, in a greyed-out state.



The assessment of your objective and the assessment reflection will appear in the objective's activity feed. Anyone with permission to view the objective can see your assessment.
