Modifying Goal Preferences by Division

  1. Select the appropriate preferences in the following sections. Click the section links to view detailed information about each preference, including ramifications and best practices. Some sections are collapsed by default; click the arrow to the right of the section heading to expand the section.
  2. Choose whether or not to overwrite custom settings for child Divisions.
  3. Click Submit.

Overwrite Settings

Choose whether to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you choose to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings will be updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.

A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.

An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.
