SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management (Legacy goal)


Weight field in goal plan is supported to use 5 types, listed as below:

  • number (recommended)
  • percent (recommended)
  • enum
  • text
  • textarea

When percent type is configured, the blue box will show in goal management.
Other four types will only show the number.

In addition, as the value in this field is used to auto-populate the objective weight when the goal is added to a Performance Management form, it is recommended to use number and percent type for weight field.

Note: field type can't be changed in instance and needs to change in goal plan template xml.
In order to make changes in Provisioning, please contact your Implementation Partner. If you don't have a Partner, you can find for SAP Certified Partners via the SAP Partner Finder or, alternatively, speak with your Account Executive or Customer Engagement Executive about Professional Services options.
