There are three types of confidence statuses for objectives.
Once you create anobjectiveand set the due date, the progress should be made on regular basis. If the ideal pace of progress is maintained then confidence status will always be on track. Actual calculations are as follow -
If actual progress is equal to or greater than 0.95x ideal progress, obj is 'on track'
If actual progress is less than 0.95x ideal progress and more than 0.75x ideal progress, obj is 'falling behind'
If actual progress is less than 0.75x ideal progress, obj is 'at risk'
Following are some examples of confidence statuses.
Once anobjectivemoves into ready for grading the confidence status stops appearing. It is also not displayed for abandoned, closed, carried forward statuses. Reason being, post all these statuses objective stops making progress.
