2314808 - Metric Lookup Table (MLT) Not Auto-Populating - Goal Management


  • The MLT Metric Lookup Table is not auto populating with the expected data and calculations.
  • Metric-look-up table, field-rating, field-desc, and actual-achievement was configured in Objective Plan.
  • When create an objective the rating and description should be calculated automatically, it seems it is required to save changes before to see the rating and description.
  • The rating and description are not being calculated automatically before click save changes, but the calculated rating and description only display when the newly added Goal is edited.
  • This issue is the same in PM, the objective section is not showing the rating.
