Copy Goals promotes continuous goal management and allows managers to use previously confirmed goals as a starting point in the current or future review cycle.
Goals that can be copied:
Goals under Goal Categories that exist in both the review round receiving the copied goals and the review round of origin.
"Clear existing goals first" will delete all goals that currently display on the current review cycle. Confirming goals will complete the deletion and confirm the copied goals plus any edits made after the copy. If this setting is turned off, the copied goals will be included along with any goals input prior to copy goals action.
"Undo Changes" will revert the copy goals function. Separately, it can also be used to un-delete goals that are needed. This will allow you to pick and choose edited goals, copied goals and which are set to be deleted.
