How to track, view and report on "tasks" setup inside Initiatives in Viva Goals?

Copper Contributor

Ok so you can setup tasks inside Initiatives and assign these, but where can you see progress on this tasks? There doesn't seem to be a way to run any analytics across progress on TASKS?

Any help would be appreciated here.

  4. Explore Initiative Details: Upon entering the selected initiative, you will typically find an overview page that provides details about the initiative's objectives, key results, and associated tasks. Familiarize yourself with this information to gain context.

  5. Locate Tasks: Look for a specific section or tab within the initiative interface that displays the tasks associated with it. The location may vary depending on the platform or tool you are using. It could be labeled as "Tasks," "Task Management," or something similar.

  6. Track Task Progress: Within the tasks section, you should be able to view the list of tasks that are part of the initiative. Depending on the platform, you might see task names, due dates, assigned individuals, and current status (such as "In Progress," "Completed," or "Overdue").

  8. Update Task Status: As tasks progress, you can update their status within the initiative's interface. Mark tasks as complete when finished, or change their status to reflect their current progress. This ensures accurate tracking and reporting.

  9. Generate Reports: To report on tasks within the initiative, most platforms offer reporting functionalities.
