Additional Information:

  • Metric lookup tables do not allow empty rows when the “write” permission is granted to this field.
  • Metric lookup tables are not supported in Career Development Plans (CDP).
  • The actual-achievement-text field is no longer supported on latest Goal Management
  • If the linearity attribute of the metric-lookup-table field is set to true and you've entered the nonlinear data in metric lookup tables, you cannot save your changes when you edit a goal. This is a hard-stop, rather than a soft-warning as it is in legacy goals. 
  • The question mark icon (tooltip) can be defined in the field-description of the metric-lookup-table field definition.
  • The Metric Lookup Table field will not be visible in the Create Goal dialogue in the latest version of Continuous Performance. Users may still create and edit goals in CPM, however they will not see the Metric Lookup Table.
