How to track your progress towards reaching a Goal on a Databoard
Pro Tip: On a Chart Datablock, you will need to select the Cumulative toggle in the Property Manager if you want to visualize Goals for longer Date Ranges. For example, if you want to view a Line Chart with "Month to Date" selected as the Date Range and compare to a Goal Value, a non-cumulative graph would allow you to compare with a daily Goal Value, while a cumulative graph would allow you to compare with a monthly Goal Value.
Pro Tip: For Chart Datablocks, you can add a Goal line to the graph in the Additional Lines section as well. Therefore, you could have the Comparison Value set to another option, such as "Previous Period." This would make it so the comparison percentage on the Datablock is showing current performance vs the previous period, but there is also a line on the graph visually representing your progress towards reaching your Goal.
