How to Add and Remove Goal Contributors and Followers

Add colleagues who should have visibility into your goal as Goal Contributors or Goal Followers. 

In this article:


As a Goal Owner, add colleagues who should have visibility into your goal as a Goal Contributor or Goal Follower. Additionally, admin users can assign Contributors and Followers to any goal. 

Goal Contributors are colleagues actively working with you on the goal. 

Contributors can see the goal on their Goals home page and can update key results or abandon the goal. Contributors, however, can not edit the details of a goal, i.e. name, key results, etc

Goal Followers can search and view the goal, even if the goal is restricted. Followers, however, can not update the progress of the goal. 

Both Contributors and Followers are notified via email when the goal has been closed.
