I'm using the Goals module in combination with Views. I'm now displaying all the Goals that were completed by a user on the profile pages in a table that contains the Goals' image and title.

Now, I'd like to explain a bit more what the user exactly achieved by adding an extra column with a description. Adding a direct description to the Goals would be a perfect solution, but as this isn't provided by the module's maintainers, I opened a feature request.

I know Drupal Answers isn't built to provide patches (although they're very welcome), so I'd like to ask whether there's perhaps another solution for my problem.

Goals used by the Goals module are implemented using fieldable entities. So you can customize goals by adding your own fields, such as:

  • descriptions.
  • images.
  • links to external resources.
  • etc.

Head over to its video tutorial, and have a look at what is shown starting from around 4:00 where you can see the typical tabs for Goals, such as:

  • Manage Fields.
  • Manage display.

For more details, refer to its Community Documentation also.

Disclosure: I'm the maintainer of this module.


This works by the module's design. I totally forgot that one can go to Configuration/Goals/Goals/Manage fields and add a text field there.
