Weird UI

2020-03-20

I find that I hate the UI so much and am so mystified by it that I start avoiding the weekly update OKR task

Pros

I like having a tool to manage the OKR process. I like the check-ins, teams, sub-teams, individual and team OKRs

Cons

Weird UI, I am constantly struggling with it.

Ally for sales teams

2020-03-18

Great customer service and helpful integration with other platforms.

Pros

Ally is fantastic for managing sales teams. It helps people focus relentlessly on what matters. It’s the basis for all my team 121s and learning plans.

Cons

The synchronisation loses connection with google sheets when cells change. Fixing the connections to prevent this would be great.

Easy to use & well-integrated with Slack

2020-08-10

Pros

The dashboard vision is pretty clear and you can see where you stand on the progress of your objectives.

Cons

The delegation to fill up some OKR for other is not so user-friendly and you can be stuck when you want to update the objective for someone else.

Great, simple, and effective OKR goalsetting software

2020-03-18

Ally has overall been a great platform that our organization uses weekly or sometimes even daily to track our goals, update our progress, and stay honest with trying to meet our personal or organizational aspirations.

Pros

The website keeps the interface simple without the confusion that a lot of platforms bring.

Cons

The software can be quite slow sometimes, especially when multiple people are adding, editing, or updating OKRs at the same time. I wish there was also a faster way to bulk upload our team's quarterly OKRs as adding them one-by-one can be tedious and slow.

Easy to use OKR tracker

2020-03-18

Pros

I love the visibility. We have it structured so you can see the OKRs of anyone in the company. You can see where people are focused and find ideas for bettering your own OKRs.

Cons

It seems like you could combine an OKR software with other task tracking softwares pretty easily.

Best tool to track OKRs

2020-04-27

Pros

%age tracking on task level and overall picture on where we are, is what I like the most.

Cons

The pricing is on a higher side, it could have been lowered, as at this price, we might not be able to get it adopted for whole org.

Clarity & Feedback with Ally

2020-04-07

Ally allowed me to document my work, keep my manager informed, and set me up for success when it came time for my OKR review.

Pros

I like the check-ins and the Slack integration. It makes it easier to do your record keeping.

Cons

Users have to rely on Administrators to set up the projects. I would prefer to create a project for my overall work to be aligned to, rather than individually listed. It doesn't connect the individual's OKRs with the team if the Admin doesn't set it up to do so.

Helping Accomplish My Goals

2020-07-29

Pros

It it easy to check-in and put if you are on track or behind and even add notes.

Cons

I don't like how what I thought was an objective Ally says that it is not aligned to any objectives but I thought it was an objective on its own and that I was allowed to have another objective on its own.

Really intuitive and easy to use

2020-03-02

I've also really appreciated the small updates and the easy of navigation.

Pros

I'm a big fan of the progress bars, which are motivational and easy to understand.

Cons

The small "open full view" button isn't intuitive and can be confusing. I'd like to be able to simply click the whole objective to open in "full view."
