The form can only have either one of the below configuration options in the Performance Form Template:

1. The form will have a dropdown menu to choose a category in the Goals section when creating and editing goals within the PM form.

However, the PM form will pull all Goals category of the employee. The category can also be changed via the Goal plan module.

2. The form will pull in only 1 selected Goal Category when the form is launched.
