Setting goals with Targets

You’ll need to be an Admin or Owner in ChartMogul to manage targets. Read more about user roles and permissions.

Targets help your team to keep track of your business’ most important monthly, quarterly, or annual goals directly in ChartMogul.

Targets help you track goals such as:

  • $5 million ARR by the end of the year
  • 500 leads from a defined marketing channel in one quarter
  • $83,334 — the MRR needed to be a $1 million business

Viewing targets

There are two ways to view targets:

  1. Navigate to Targets   to view a list of current and past targets, including the percentage attained and time until the deadline (or a past deadline date). Hover over the values to display more details.

Targets are moved to Past Targets (located under your current targets) once the set time period is complete. This gives your team a look into historical targets, the time period they covered, and whether they were attained (or exceeded).
