Overall Satisfaction with PerformYard

I use PerformYard at work to create and track goals. My project managers are able to review my goals, and my coworkers have the option to leave me feedback regarding my project work and contributions to the firm. I can view my goals in a graph, which helps me understand my progress. The format is semi-private (again, my managers can see it however my other coworkers cannot). I use PerformYard for large-scale, big picture yearly goals, rather than project-specific short-term goals. I believe it is perfect for this use.
  • Visualize data
  • Collaborate with managers and coworkers.
  • Provide a platform to respectfully and appropriately share feedback.
  • It's difficult to edit goals once they've been posted. If I want to change something I generally delete and re-type the goal.
  • The dashboard and user interface could incorporate some more color. I appreciate minimalism but adding color could help with user wayfinding throughout the site.
  • There might already be a desktop app, if there is then I'm not aware. If there isn't, this could be helpful and would encourage users to keep their goals up to date.
  • It has encouraged me to actually complete goals rather than "almost" complete them because I want to be able to check off the box.
  • Sometimes it's difficult to track goals without clear metrics, however, this might be a positive thing because it encourages the user to create metric-based goals.
  • One positive impact is the impact this program has on extrinsically motivated employees.
PerformYard is better for long-term goals, whereas Asana is preferable for short-term goals. Both are very collaborative. The PerformYard interface is more professional and serious than Asana (I like Asana's playfulness). PerformYard is for personal goals, Asana is for project goals. Both are important in my profession. Asana is slightly easier to use, and we use it on a daily basis.

We use PerformYard to track progress and goals in-between annual reviews. This program is well suited for annual reviews because it allows the user to see progress throughout their entire past year. It is less appropriate to use on a daily basis for short-term goal tracking, such as during project work.
