First, read about how to set up Goals

You store things like Goals in custom fields as a string of text, a number, or anything else that's customized to the student that can help to personalize their experience inside the course journey, and allow students to change them further if they wish. Allowing students to customize their own experience helps deepen their engagement.

Here's how to do that:

How to Set Up Customizable Goals for Your Students

First, in your Account section, create a Custom Field for each goal that you want the student to be able to edit

Set it as "student editable".

In Page Builder, Edit the Action Block for your Goals

In the Action field, type a forward slash: / to pull up the menu and click on "Tokens"

Scroll down, and you'll see the custom field that you've created. Select that Custom Field to add it to the Goal

Now, your student can visit their Account section and they'll see a space to edit their goals

Your student will now see their personal goals, when they log into their dashboard.
