Couple of my customers have business use cases where they want to have nested objectives under main objective in SPs. They tried implementing one SP with high-level objectives and listed the sub-objectives under tasks; but this structure wasn't suitable for them and could not be utilised efficiently. Therefore, they had to create multiple SP to track one program.
Can we expect any SP functionality that gives a nested structure to objectives?

@Anshita  @Cornelia I created a custom field on Success Plans that we want to use like a tag (multi-select for our products so a CSM could indicate which products the Success Plan is for). We had a similar use case an @Anshita where CSMs wanted to have this grouped. However, you cannot display custom fields on the the list view or use it in a search, which makes the attempt to work around obsolete and is only good in pulling reports. As another option, could we look at creating “tagging” of some sort to group or filter like success plans?

@Anshita we are building a feature in Gainsight that will allow you to nest multiple success plans or CTAs underneath overarching customer goals. This should solve your need and I’ll let @Anil Raj Pujari share more.
