Making a subgoal the root goal

Hello, I know you posted an answer for this question using goalscape desktop, but is there a way to do this in the online version?

    Hello Ariel

    We are investigating an elegant way to implement this functionality in Goalscape Online – probably using a 'Download Selected Subgoal As' function. Our next Updates will include 'partial reporting' (to Download reports based on the current Focus view) so we may well be able to include this function – I have notified the development team and they may comment here.

    In the meantime you will need to start a New Project and rename the Main Goal to that of the selected subgoal in the original project (and C&P the Notes and any other Comments). Then C&P the subgoals of the selected subgoal as Level 1 subgoals in the New Project (they will carry with them all their subgoals) and adjust their Importances. You will also need to Share the new project as appropriate.

    Note though that any changes made in the new project will not update the original one (or vice versa). So to avoid confusion, in the original project you can delete all the subgoals of the selected subgoal and put a hyperlink in the Notes to point to the new project. And in the new project you can use a hyperlink to point back to the original overall project.

    All the best

    This comment was split into a new discussion: Goal name changes not saved

    Thanks Richard. I wanted to make an unrelated comment when I make changes
    in my projects, sometimes the change in the structure(new subgoals) is
    saved, but the names that I give to the different subgoals are not saved.
    When I open back the project, instead of the names I gave, I see subgoal
    (number). I don't know if it's a known problem, just wanted to bring it
    into your attention and ask whether it can be fixed.
