Manage Shared and Dynamic Goals

The Manage Shared and Dynamic Goals page enables administrators or managers to edit shared and dynamic goals on behalf of the goal owner or goal manager. This page is only available when enabled via Navigation Tabs and Links.

Shared goals allow all assigned users to add comments to the shared goal, even if they are not the goal owner.

Note: It is not possible to remove a user from a shared goal and shared and dynamic goals cannot be copied.

To manage shared and dynamic goals, go to Performance > Manage Shared and Dynamic Goals. The location may vary depending on the settings in Navigation Tabs and Links.


Use the search fields to search for goals by:

  • Goal Date Range - Select the date range either using the drop-down or the From and To date selectors. This displays goals that overlap in any way with the selected date range. The From and To date selectors default to the default goal period.
  • Title - Enter the goal title. The character limit is 1000. You can search using the full or partial goal title.
  • Created By - Search for goals by creator. The Select User pop-up enables users to search by Last Name, First Name, User ID, or Manager's Last Name.
  • Owned By -Search for goals by goal owner.
  • Show Canceled - Select this option to include canceled goals in the display. This option is deselected by default.

Goals are sorted by goal target date with the soonest target due date appearing first. Only the following types of goals appear on this page:

  • Company Goals
  • Shared Goals (OU or Team)
  • Individual Goals created for an OU or Team that are not dynamic
  • Note: Individual goals created prior to the Spring 2012 release do not appear on this page, as they cannot be made dynamic retroactively.
