It is possible to set goals within your Totara Learn site, these can be either team or individual goals. Settings goals allows you to connect high-level goals at the organisational level with detailed objectives at the individual level using a flexible, tiered approach.

As a Site Administrator you can go to Site administration > Hierarchy > Goals > Manage goals to create new goals for use in the system by following these steps to create all the components: 

  1. Create goal scales to allow you to measure the progress of a goal.
