You tried to configure another field than Name to be in first place when creating a goal, however the Goal Name is still the first field.

SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Goal Plan Template XML, configure the order of the fields so that the "name" is not the first one.

    For example, "control-category-element" is the first one and "name" is the second one.

  2. Upload the Goal Plan Template in the environment
  3. Open the Goal Plan and click to create a new goal
  4. The "name" field is in the first place and the field that you configured as the first one is in the second place:


This is currently the expected behavior for Latest Goal Management.


In Legacy Goal Management you can configure other fields than Name to be the first one, however in Latest Goal Management it is the expected behavior that the Name will always be the first field when you click to create a new goal, while the other fields will be ordered according to the Goal Plan Template XML configuration.
