Quantive Results allows you to easily track OKRs using coloring. You can configure the colors for better visualization of your OKRs progress.

The color scale for OKRs progress is applied account-wide and takes effect over all OKR sessions. Any objectives and key results, created in your account, will have the same success range coloring.

You can use the following settings for colors and numbers to display the progress of OKRs:

  • Colored percentage number

  • Colored dot with no number

  • Percentage number in black color only

You can change the colors for each range, add and delete ranges.

NOTE: The same colors and ranges are applied when displaying key result progress.


To edit the color scale for OKRs progress, you must be an administrator or have permissions to access the account settings.


To modify the color scale for OKRs progress, perform the following:

  1. In the bottom of the navigation pane, click Settings.

  2. Under the System section, click on Methodology.

  3. In the Color scale and labeling settings section, for Color scale for OKRs progress click Set color scale.

  4. In Display Progress with, select whether you want to track progress with colors, percentages, or both.

    Select one of the following: Percentage and color, Color only, Percentage only .

    If you have selected Percentage and colors, when you open a session, its OKRs’ progress will be displayed in a colored percentage. If you have selected Color only, the progress is displayed as a colored dot. If you have selected Percentage, the progress is displayed as a percentage only.

  5. If you have selected Percentage and color or Color only, you can set different colors for the ranges of OKR attainment, add new ranges, or delete existing ranges.

  6. To add a new range, in the input field, enter the upper limit of the new range and click Add.

    For example, if you enter 10, the new color range will be applied, if OKR attainment is less than 10%.
