2071563 - Goal Execution - Actual Execution update via Status Reports not updating goal plan - Goal Management


  • When you make an edit to Actual Execution field via the Status Report you do not see the change saved to the goal plan.


  • Goal Management


  • Product Limitation


  • Goal Execution fields will only sync onto a goal plan after clicking the ‘send status report’ button. In this scenario, even after the synch takes place, the goal plan still is not able to trigger the “auto population” on the goal plan as the auto populate functionality only currently happens for a goal when a user opens, edits, and saves that goal.


  • Therefore to see the update on the goal plan then the user currently needs to open and save the goal plan.
  • This also can cause data not to be in  sync with the PM form if this data is also being pulled into the PM form.
  • The solution is to open and save the goal.
