Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to People Profile
  2. Click on the 'Actions' tab on the top right
  3. Under 'Jump To' see if the Developmnt Plan link appears

This is also the same for the Take Action option used in the My Team Home page tile:

If you wish to have this displayed, then it needs to be enabled in Provisioning by either Support or Partner/ Consultant


Only Partners and Support have access to Provisioning.

To enable this go to:

Provisioning search for and enable "My Goals Tab" (also called "My Objectives Tab"):

  • Once enabled and saved, and you have the permission 'Manage Action Search' defined in RBP you will be able to see the link in the Actions menu. 
  • Note: users will still need permission defined in Role Based Permissions to access the Development and/ or the Goal Plan - depending on which feature you wish to give access to.

Important: Enabling this feature will also add the 'Objectives Plan' link for Goal Management to the 'Jump To' dropdown. One cannot be enabled without the other. This is the current system behavior.

Note: When accessing a goal plan/ development plan through  the 'Jump to' option or a deeplink in a PM form, the system will always direct to the plan of the logged in user and not the user being viewed.
