The Confidence level in Gtmhub indicates your subjective feeling on how likely you are to achieve a given key result in the respective time frame.
In a combination with the objective measurement of your achievement (KR values that mark the OKR progress), the subjective Confidence level provides more context. Eg. low KR progress with high confidence level might mean although we don't have tangible progress to report against, things will pick up soon and via versa - high KR progress with low Confidence might indicate a roadblock which soon might impede our way to successfully accomplishing the OKR.
