  • Library Goals and Library Goal Button


  • Goal Management


When you add a new goal/objective a pop up window will show the available options currently configured for your instance. The three possible buttons to see are:

  1. Personal Goal
  2. Group Goal
  3. Library Goal

NOTE: When only one goal option exists, e.g. Personal Goal, the dialog will launch when user clicks on "Add Goal" - no dropdown 

To change the description underneath the button, use the following code in the goal plan template…

<text-replacement for="lib-goal-btn-desc">
<text lang="en_US"><![CDATA[CUSTOM TEXT HERE]]></text>


  • You can rename the word Library from Admin Tools > System Properties > Text Replacement > Search for  library.
    The word Goal or Objective can also be changed via Text Replacement >
    • $(ProvObjectives)   
    • $(ProvObjective)   
    • $(Provobjectives)   
    • $(Provobjective) 
  • Please keep in mind personalizing these changes not just the add goal buttons, but the word throughout the application. Note there are 4 options to customize all case sensitive options, Goals, Goal, goals, goal.
  • Click Save at bottom of the page to apply changes.
  • The Add Library Goal button shows if your goal plan contains the following xml. To remove a library please open a support case and submit a CCOR to have the plan updated.
