Indicator fields

Some features in this module are reserved for the LogAlto Configured and LogAlto+ plans

If you are currently using the Free trial or LogAlto complete plan and wish to get access to Premium features, please contact us at

For an overview of what you can do in Logalto's administrative settings, go to the section's overview article.

If your organisation follows Results Based Management practices, chances are you use a form of Performance Measurement Framework (PMF). A PMF contains overview information related to the indicators used to follow the logframe's results, such as :

  • The target beneficiary: score/beneficiary or of the whole target group
  • The baseline and targets
  • What data sources (verification sources) you will use
  • How you will collect data
  • At what frequency
  • Who is responsible for the indicator

In LogAlto, baseline, targets, frequency and person responsible (assignee) are default fields. Other fields can be added by an admin.

Field types

This feature works just like Project fields. Please go the article for a detailed description of field types.

Field options

Once you drag and drop a field type into the field area of the screen, you will be automatically prompted to enter the fields options. The only mandatory field is its label. The other option common to all field types are:

Visible Users will be able to see the field and its information in the Logframe module. If this unchecked, the field will be hidden to all users, but can still be filled using the API
Read-only If the field is visible, it can be set to "Read-only", meaning it will be seen by users and they will not be able to change it. 
Displayed in logframe When viewing the logframe, this field will be displayed as a column. 
Available in the indicator library This field is also available when creating indicators in the indicator library.
Importable When importing indicators in logframes, this field is available in the import template.
