Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Admin Center;
  2. Import goals through the Import Development Goals/ Beta Goal Import tool;
  3. There is a checkbox for "Read-only goals":

However, users can still edit the goals, after importing, in the Development Plan.


The Read-Only feature is from the previous goal import feature and is not supported with the new import tool.


This is the current expected system behavior and is working as designed. The "Read-only goals" options will not take any effect in the Development Goal, with the current import tool.
