  3. In the Backlog Goal/Objective window, enter details in the required fields.

    • Select the Target In Project check box to if you want to focus on this backlog goal/objective in the selected project and all its sub-projects.

  4. Click Save.

Option 2: On the Release Scheduling Page

You can also create backlog goals/objectives directly on the Release Scheduling Page. To learn more, see Adding a Backlog Goal/Objective on the Release Scheduling Page.

Backlog Goals can be created at the Team or the scope (release or PI) level. There are separate buttons for each.
