Important Information

  • Even when only using Achievements, users require View and Edit permission for Activities as well as View and Edit permissions for Achievements.

  • When adding an Achievement, a corresponding Activity is also created with the same name.

  • The Activity will have the status which is set as the “Prompt Achievement Creation” default status.

  • The Activity will have the same goal linked, if a goal is linked to the Achievement.

  • Deleting the Activity will also delete the Achievement, and vice versa.

  • It is not possible to request feedback on the Achievement, however it is possible to request feedback on the corresponding Activity, and the received feedback will show as linked to both the Activity and the Achievement.

  • There is a max character limit of 4000 characters for the Achievement name.

  • Creating stand-alone Achievements is not currently supported under the Achievements View on the SF Mobile Application.
