Make success metric field optional and/or remove field from Goals layout

Similar to every other field on a Goal record, I would like to be able to remove the ‘Success Metric’ field and/or make it optional on the create screen.

    We have the same use case as many who have already commented, we need to track multiple KRs each with a metric for one goal/objective.

    Agree with Richard M's comment below. We are having to use the description box to store (O)KRs as the 'Success metric' isn't useful in it's current state, and being a required field makes it all the more frustrating!

    Please make this optional, we have custom success metrics and now every time a goal is created we have to add a note "see metrics tab" (or similar).

    Please also make it so that it can be removed/hidden from the overview.

    We have 2-3 success metrics for each goal. Making this optional, we can create "Key Metrics" field to track all of them under one goal and make Success Metrics as Optional and/or remove it

    This functionality would help our team - we would like to standardize the success metric as a predefined choice list, opposed to the open text field

    Would like to rename the field (We are using the term performance metrics) and add additional additional values so can track multiple metrics.

    We are using OKRs where an Aha! goal record is the objective and a custom table holds the key results. An implementation is provided in an Aha! article. Thanks by the way. Each KR has its own success metric and there is expected to be 3 to 5 key results for each objective. This renders the required success metric of no value. We generally post "see key results" in the success metric field simply to satisfy the creation of the goal record.


remove the required flag from the success metric for Goals

We are trying to use a combination of Goals and initiatives to align to our OKRs for the company. because of how roadmap hierarchy reports work we need to define objective as a goal and KRs as initiatives for the report to work. right now our PMs ...
