Correlate objectives within the objective map
  1. Select Mapping from the tabs bar.
  2. On this screen, click the vertical menu in the toolbar and:
    • Select New to create a new map (this selection is continued below).
    • Select Import to import an existing map.

4. Provide:

  • GUIDs for the Source and Correlation objectives; these are for organizational purposes only, and don't impact how the objectives are handled.
  • The relative Weight to indicate the strength of the correlation. Higher numbers indicate greater correlation; if you leave all correlations with the same weight, they are treated equally.

5. Save.

  1. The map appears on the Mapping screen where you can Edit it or check the box, open the vertical menu in the toolbar and Delete it.


  • Keep in mind that all changes impact sub-domains.
