Goal templates must contain a title and description, but can also contain an associated perspective, category, weight, and tasks. If perspective is enabled, it will be required as the Goals Library will be organized by perspective.
Templates do not contain targets, because targets should be created specifically for each employee based on experience and circumstances.
Before a user can use a goal template, the administrator must first create them. Once created, the administrator can deactivate a template by deselecting the Active checkbox next to it. This will make that template invisible to all users. Deactivated items will remain in the system, but will not be visible to end users. The administrator can also edit, copy, or delete a template using the corresponding icons found in the Options column.
