Introduction

The Targets Add-on is designed to help you set achievable goals for your employees within a specific time frame. It enables you to set targets on multiple records or aggregate any numerical field in any module.

Setting Targets

You can set Targets or Quotas:

  • For individual members or a team in the Targets module.
  • For anyone reporting to you or lower in the hierarchy.
  • On a monthly and quarterly basis.

You can set the following three target values in the Targets module:

  • Quota - You can set the target you or your team want to achieve in a month or a quarter. Here, you can assign individual targets and view or modify them.
  • Achieved - This value tells you if the set target was achieved. 
  • Gap - This tells you if there was a gap between the set and achieved targets. 

Targets List View

The Targets module List View displays details of all the Targets you set for individuals and teams. You can find data on the targets set, targets achieved, and the gap between the set and achieved targets. You can also find every month’s progress if monthly targets are set. 

Filters in the List View 

You can apply filters to view the Targets in the Targets module List View. For example, you can view data for monthly and quarterly targets. You can also choose the period between which you want to view the Targets.

  • Edit - This allows you to edit a Target record. 
  • Duplicate - This allows you to Duplicate a Target record.

Targets at Organization and Partner Organization levels

You can set targets at an organizational level for the following options - User, Organization, or Partner Organization. 

For example, if each store can have multiple sales reps on different floors, they may change. Therefore, targets are set at the store level (i.e, Organization).

For Partner Organization, all the modules related to Partner Organization are displayed in the Measured Entity. You do not have a User hierarchy if the target set is for an Organization or Partner Organization.

You can also edit and change target values when they are in the running duration.
