  • This article reviews how to rename the "Add 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

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


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


  • You can rename the words Personal, Group or Library from Admin Tools > System Properties > Text Replacement > Search for personal, group or library. All 3 options are located together and you can personalize any.
    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.
