  • Goal Management


  • Check current permissions for this user
    • Default user permissions. Are you using this option and if so did you enable it for this goal plan?
    • Are you using individual goal plan permission access? If so ensure you granted this goal plan to these users.
    • If the goal plan permissions are set correctly, and you had no problems with goal plan permissions in the past, then it may require a back end switch is adjusted for your instance.
  • Please open a support ticket to have us check the following for your instance > Enable target population for group goals. If this is enabled disable it.
    • CS Actions: Check the provisioning setting under Company Settings-->Goal Frameworks-->uncheck 'Enable target population for group goals — requires “Total Goal Management”'
    • Save it
    • Change will take affect within next 30 mins
  • Need to grant assignee view his goal plan permission then assignee can view his goal plan and assigned goal: 
    1. make sure assignee have view his own goal plan permission
    2. make sure assignee is in his own target population
