Reproducing the Issue


  • Latest Goal Management has been enabled in the environment - see the Goal Admin Guide for further information about this feature.
  • Goal Plan templates have been validated, or a new Goal Plan template has been created from SuccessStore.
  • The Status field is configured in the template.


  1. Navigate to the Goals module;
  2. Select a Goal Plan.

Some of the status tabs display no numbers, and when selecting a status, the tab disappears from view:

  • The Status field dropdown options have a white label colour selected.
  • As the background colour does not display in the latest version of Goal Management, the white label colour blends into the white page background:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Manage Templates
  2. Select Edit Fields
  3. Select the Status field

Change the label colour of the dropdown options to a darker colour that will surface on the white page background of the goal plan:

On the Goal Plan, the numbers are now visible in each status tab:
