2469574 - Goals imported into the system are not displaying in the same order in which they are imported


Imported goals are not displaying in the system as per the order in the csv file in which they are imported.


Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

Import the goals into the system using the Beta Goal Import


Once Goals are imported into the system,four different processes occur:

  1. Import goals
  2. Save goals to database
  3. Load goals from database
  4. Display in goal plan page

Import goals and save goals to database: it's a job that creates goals according to the csv file and then save them to database, but it doesn't follow the same order from while loading gaols from database to Goal Plan. Simply speaking, the order of creating goals and saving them to database cannot be controlled. (p.s. As per the content in your notification email,it just indicates which row has been processed by the job.)

Loading goals from database and displaying in goal plan page:The order is as below:

 Firstly,Sorted by obj_order ascend, (for items with same obj_order), Secondly, by objective_name ascend. Simply speaking, this order cannot be controlled. (p.s. obj_order and objective_name is database table field name, not the csv field name.)

Please refer the numbering related information in the Goal Management implementation Guide
