2912117 - Redirection from Direct Report's Goal Plan to Logged-in User's Goal Plan When Accessed From Manage My Team Tile - Goal Management


When a Manager accesses a Direct Report's Goal Plan from the Manage My Team tile, when Adding/Editing/Deleting/Cancelling goals on the Direct Report's Goal Plan, the plan reloads and redirects to the logged-in user's goal plan i.e. Manager's Goal Plan.

The Goal Plan page refreshes and rather than staying on the Direct Report's goal plan, it redirects to the logged-in user's goal plan (i.e. the Manager's goal plan):

The setting "Encrypt User ID in URL" is enabled in Company System and Logo Settings.


  • When "Encrypt User ID in URL" is enabled, this will mask the User ID in the URL.
  • When accessing the Goal Plan from Manage My Team tile, this bypasses the URL (including encrypted User ID) to make the browser open on the Direct Report's Goal Plan page.
  • When the logged-in user selects an Add/Edit/Cancel/Delete action on the Goal Plan, this will make the Goal Plan reload.
  • The page reload cannot fetch the User ID so it will load the logged in user's goal plan by default.
