Goal Long Description Does Not Appear Anywhere Outside The Goal Details Page (Doc ID 2434805.1)

Oracle Fusion Goal Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Goal Long Description does not appear anywhere outside the goal details page. Customer have enabled the Long Description field on the goal details page (per the new 18A feature: New Attribute for Goal Object - Long Description). Customer have a requirement to have a goal description which allows for rich text editing, a very large character limit and will appear throughout the application where the goal description already appears (Goals Shared with Me” page, “Add Goals from Other Sources” page, goal description in the goal email notifications, in the performance document).

They would like to ONLY use this new goal long description, however they are seeing unexpected results from testing the field after receiving the 18A update. The long description field exists on the goal details page, but it does not show up anywhere else in the system where goal description typically displays and it is not reportable via OTBI.

This is not acceptable and does not meet requirement at all. They were planning to use only this new field, and hide the original (non-rich text) Description.

These are concerns with the goal long description field:
• Does not print on the delivered goals printout
• Is not reportable via OTBI
• Does not appear on the “Goals Shared with Me” or “Add Goals from Other Sources” page
• Does not appear as the goal description in the goal email notifications
• Does not appear in the performance document
