This occurs when the user does not have the necessary permissions over any Development Plan in the instance.


If your instance uses Role-based Permissions:

If your instance uses Legacy Permissions:

Admin Center → Set User Permissions → Default User Permission

Then, find the section of "Goal Plan Permissions" and check the Development Plan template that should be allowed
