You can align any goal that you own to any goal you have visibility into within your organization to visually signal that your goal relates to another goal.
You can align any goal that you own to any other public goal in your organization or any restricted goal for which you are a contributor or team member. In other words, you can only align your goal to a restricted goal if you are either a contributor for that goal or a team member who belongs to that restricted team goal. You will not have the option to align any of your goals to restricted goals for which you are a follower.
Goal owners are the only users who can align their goals. Contributors, followers, and team members cannot align goals on behalf of the goal owner.
