Work.com: Why do I see Metrics under the Goal Name heading in reports

Knowledge Article Number 000214824
Description Users may have noticed that when they run a report to view the metric details, the metrics are shown under the Goal name heading.
 
Resolution If you are using the out of the box Goal progress report to view the metrics, then the heading would be Goal Name. As the Goal and Metric are both stored in the same object Goals. The only way to differentiate is by the Filter criteria Goal Type equal Goals to view goals or Goal Type equals Metric, Key Result to view the Metrics.
