2072018 - Manage Templates - Goal Alerts How to Default to Not Display These : Goal Management


  • Article explains how to set alerts for all users


  • Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

The onscreen alert is a yellow triangle icon that appears next to a goal plan to indicate one of the following events occurred:
● Goal is aligned to another goal by another user
● Goal is modified by another user
● Aligned up goal is modified by goal owner
● Aligned up goal is deleted by goal owner
● Aligned up goal is unaligned by another user
● Aligned down goal is modified by goal owner
● Aligned down goal is deleted by goal owner


  • To manually turn off the alerts, do the following:
  1. Click on the Display Option on your goal plan, and uncheck the alerts and click update.
  2. That will remove the alerts.

However, if you want to turn off the alerts for the entire user population, then modify the goal template XML coding so alerts  = false, and that will turn it off.  However, if a user checks it on then the alert will be sent out since the manual checking the box will override the goal template setting.
