This article details the process of adding recommendations and describes some of its features.
Recommendations are the building blocks of a strategic plan. Unlike Initiatives, recommendations are assigned to a quarter and have a narrower span of time when that item should be implemented. To create a recommendation, click the plus sign at the top of any quarter.
Add Recommendation - details
Note: You can create a new recommendation or choose from a prefabricated template.
Tip: You can add recommendations as more of a placeholder with the Add to recommendation backlog feature.
When the project work related to the recommendation has been completed, change the status of that recommendation to Complete. This will shade the recommendation green and act as a visual cue for your completed work.
