Editing a field in Goal Execution Status Report or another Goal Execution tab and then saving will not update the same field on the goal plan. Not all goal execution fields appear to be affected.

  • Goal Management
  • Goal Execution

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Add these goal execution fields to your goal plan template:
    • bizx-strategic
    • bizx-effort-spent
    • bizx-status-comments
  2. Configure the goal plan layout to display these fields
  3. Change the fields in their respective tabs
  4. Go to the goal plan -- changes not reflected


see resolution.


As per the Goal Management Implementation Guide, this is expected behavior. The field bizx-strategic is visible only in Execution Map. bizx-effort-spent and bizx-status-comments will only show up on the  Status Report tab.
