Important Business KPI Settings

Goal Type

Number - The most common option. Selecting the number goal type allows you to enter only numbers for the metric created.

Text - The text option allows you to set your goal to a character value. For example, your team could be tracking metrics that require a Yes/ No or True/ False.
The green/ gray line at the bottom of each cell is based on text input, and the 'goal direction' can only be 'Equal =' for this option. For example, if the goal is set to 'Yes', any cell which has 'Yes' or any variation of 'yes' (such as YES or yes), would show a green line, and any cell which has any other text input would remain gray.

Unit - Will display the unit of measurement to the left of your goal. However, percent, hours, and minutes will display to the right. 

Numerical Goal Description (optional) - Will display text next to the numerical goal on the right side of the metric.


Numerical Average and Cumulative (numerical goal only) - Displays the average or cumulative starting from a specific date. To turn on either of these functions:

  1. Click on the metric title.
  2. Click the 'Show advanced fields' button under Assign to 'meeting(s)' at the bottom
  3. Check the box(es) and input a start date to begin the calculation.
  4. Click the save and close button on the bottom right.
