Deleting a Goal but keeping the sub Goals

I have a main goal with a subgoal.
The subgoal has 3 subgoals.
I want to delete the subgoal but retain the 3 subgoals as subgoals of the main goal.
How do I do it?
Right now, if I delete the subgoal, the 3 sub-sub goals also get deleted.
I want to keep the children and delete only the immediate parent.

Please advice.

    Hello Praveen

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    To delete a goal without deleting its subgoals, first drag the subgoals to the same level as the parent (in this case you can make them subgoals of the main goal). Then delete their old parent and adjust the importances of the subgoals as necessary to reflect their contribution to the main goal.

    Keep achieving great goals!
