Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to instance and navigate to Performance Tab, open the form
  2. Click on Add Goal > Select Create from library
  3. Select a goal
  4. Select Next > Next > Save
  5. "Create goal successful" is shown but the goal is not added to the form


This is a known issue where the goal category doesn't match correctly. For example, a performance form goal section is set to category A. However, category C is the default category in the goal plan. When creating the goal from the library, the system is trying to pull in category C (default from goal plan) instead of category A (default performance form goal section).


The fix for this issue is planned to be deployed on 2H 2024 release (b2411).
