How to access the Mass Import Goals feature: 

  1. In Admin Center, select Goal Management to display options
  2. Select "Import Performance Goals" (or "Import Development Goals" from the Development options)

  • Maximum/Minimum weight per objective (max-weight-per-obj and min-weight-per-obj) rules will apply. If violated, there will be an error message. 
  • If start/due date fields are not in the range of the Goal Plan start and end dates (obj-plan-start/obj-plan-due dates), there will be an error message. 
  • If there are unsupported fields in the import file (e.g. comments, link, etc.), there will be an error message.
