3479760 - Objective Fields have been Rounded when viewed


For the goals in the Metric Lookup Table:

  • Goal values are rounded when "View Details" is used to view the table
  • However, when the goal is edited, the full set of decimal values are shown as when the goal was created.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Latest Goal Management, the goal plan has been configured to have a Metric Lookup table.
  2. Create a goal, including values in the metric lookup with decimals, example below.
  3. Viewing the goal details, the system has rounded the value:


Expected behaviour


  • It is expected behaviour that the number display while editing and creating a goal is always displayed in full.
  • Additionally, calculations/auto-population respect that rule as well.
  • This is to ensure the most accurate and precise input is used for calculations.
  • However, after saving the goal and viewing it in the Goal details page, the format configuration will then be applied (i.e 2dp, or 3dp, etc.)
