You can add your objective along with its note. You also have an option to assign an answerable person for your OKR.
You can decide the due date while creating an objective.
If you are setting up quarterly OKR you can set the due date till the end of next month, in case of yearly OKRs you can set the due date till the end of upcoming year.
P.S. - You will be able to perform the check-ins even after the due date but the performance will not be measurable and the results will not represent in the graph for that particular objective.
