Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a goal with weight in goal plan or in performance form and save it
  2. Open the launched form and delete the individual goal weight within Performance document
  3. Save the form and send it to the next step
  4. The form is moving to the next step successfully
  5. Expectation is that the form does not move to the next step


This is achievable via Admin Center => Performance Management => Manage Templates

Open the affected goal section and click on "Show advanced options"

Tick the following checkboxes:

  1. Include the ability to rate (choose between rating option 0-3 - please check the Performance Management implementation guide for more information)
  2. "Auto populate goal weights from weights in the goal plan" or "  
  3. Scroll down to the permissions and give field + required field permissions for item weight
