After choosing a Snapshot template/scope under Track > Snapshots, you can then decide how you want the Goals to be organized in the report using the Secondary Grouping drop-down.

Cascade will automatically pick an appropriate Secondary Grouping for you depending on the template (for example, "Focus Areas" for a Strategy report), but this can be changed freely. Not every option is available for every template, however.

See below for a description of each option:

  • None - Choose to not group the Goals at all.

  • Plan - If you have multiple plans enabled, this will group by Plan.

  • Focus Area - Group by Focus Areas.

  • Organization - Group by the Goal Owners' Organizational Units.

  • Status - Group Goals by status (On Track, Behind etc). See below for a screenshot of this example.

  • Start Time - Group Goals by whether it's Start Date is one of the following: Started, Within a Month, Within 3 Months, or Within a Year.

  • End Time - Groups Goals by End Date, including the following groups: Past Due, Due Today, Within a Month, Within 3 Months, or Within a Year.

  • Weight - Groups Goals by Weight.

  • Owner - Groups Goals by owner.

  • Custom Fields - Group Goals by custom fields attached to your Goal Templates. Only Drop-down, Checkbox and Radio button are supported.

Also be sure to Define Scope

The Define Scope options will also vary depending on the Snapshot Type.

Options include the following:

  • Show Aligned Goals: Limit Goal levels to include any number of layers in your strategy. For example, "1" would mean "Only show the top-level Objectives." Listing a "2" would mean "Show the top-level Objectives, and the next level down."

  • Remove greyed-out Goals (read more here)

  • Include Draft

  • Include Archived

  • Add Goals with Tasks Matching Scope (Tasks matching your filtered criteria)

Next, you'll need to select your Snapshot filters.
