How do I manage objective legends?

What are objectives?

Objectives tie in together your roadmap cards. These may be strategic areas of interest, or a particular goal you wish to achieve across your account.

Objective legends are set on an account basis - so whatever legend you set for one product will be set for all products. There are a total of 9 available for you to work with.

How do I edit my objectives?

Click on 'Show objectives legend' on any of your roadmaps. This will toggle the legend and show all available labels.



Click on any of the labels and start typing to name the objective!

How do I filter my roadmap based on objectives?

Once your legend has been set, you can then use the filters to filter down on colors/objectives of interest.



How do I manage old and completed objectives?

Use the completed column to show a timeline of initiatives and progress against objectives, alongside the Product Documentation section to outline History of objectives and other details as needed.

The Canvas can then outline the upcoming/current objectives so the team can stay focused on what to aim for, and not get confused by the objectives you've already met.

    Why only 9 objectives? Seems very constraining! May be a road-block from adopting ProdPad.

    Hey Marc,
    Got back to you via email earlier - but our goal is to help keep you focused on your objectives. Remember you can always pair up objectives with tags if you're looking to focus on a specific module or area of your product, and there are no limits for tags at all.

    It would be cool for my relationship with the Design department of the company if we could customise the colors ;-)

    can objectives not be per product? or at least per product line? we have several product lines who have different objectives

    @andrew this is something we are working on for an upcoming rehaul of the roadmap section.

    I can't seem to change relabel (e.g. change colours) on the objectives I can only change the title. Is there a way to do this?

    @Carrie, only objective names can be changed, not colors.
