Individual goal plans are controlled by a goal plan template. The goal plan template is coded in XML and some aspects of the configuration can be modified from the instance by navigating to Manage Templates. SAP SuccessFactors merges the goal plan template with the user information found in the instance and displays the resulting goal plan. The main element of the goal plan template is the
<obj-plan-template>, where most of the attributes that control the general settings of the template are found.
