Editing a cascading SMART goal

May 22nd, 2024 Updated

The best way to edit an existing SMART goal, or Objective as it is referred to in the application, is to navigate to Objectives > Overview.

Click on the name of the specific Objective you want to edit to get to its detail page.

Objective Details Page

On the details page of the objective, you can edit the following things:

  • Objective name and description
  • Measurement type and target
  • Details (due dates, privacy settings, labels and check-in reminder)
  • Participants (owners, stakeholders, followers)
  • Alignment details (add or update parent and child objectives)

Note: Owners of objectives can edit all parts of an objective. Stakeholders will have limited editing abilities, while Followers will not be able to edit an objective.
