  • When you add a new Goal Plan template from SuccessStore, the control-category-element field is not configured by default.
  • If you wish to view and edit the Category field on the goal plan, the control-category-element field must be defined - please refer to the Goal Management Admin Guide for the correct configuration: Defining Category and Default-Category.
  • Read and Write permissions should also be configured for the control-category-element in field permissions.
