Draft Goals

You can save any goal as a draft before officially launching it in Quantum Workplace.

In this article:

Overview

When you create a goal in Quantum Workplace, you have the option to save it as a draft, which gives you the opportunity to continue to edit all aspects of the goal before you officially launch the goal in Quantum Workplace.

When a goal is saved as a draft, it is only visible to the goal owner, anyone in the upline of the goal owner, and Admin users of Quantum Workplace.  Draft goals are not visible to any contributors or followers.

 

How to Save a Draft Goal

When you create a goal in Quantum Workplace, you have the option to save it as a draft by clicking Create in Draft Mode on the final, Review page of the Goal Wizard.

You can save a draft of any goal that has a goal name, regardless of whether you have entered key results for the goal or updated any of the goal configurations.

You can also add contributors and followers to the draft goal. Keep in mind, they will only be notified once you launch the goal.
