Targets are typically used for Budgets and Forecasts, and tied to specific metrics. You may add more than one target to your workspace.

Prepare your targets data
You can set up targets by registering a target table from your database. Steep will read targets from this table and match them to the corresponding metrics by name. The target table needs to follow a certain format for it to work.
Steep currently supports monthly targets, and interpolates a daily target pace based on the monthly values.
Target table format
|series||Budget 2022||String||Target series name|
|time||2022-04-01||Date or Timestamp||Target date (month)|
The target table needs to match the format above to be read correctly. Each row in the table corresponds to a target data point for a specific metric.
The series name can be used to set up parallell target series, e.g. ”Budget”, ”Budget v2”, ”Stretch goals”, that users can switch between.
The metric identifier is used to specify the metric and corresponds to a lower-case-and-hyphens version of the metric name, e.g. a metric named ”Organic Regs” has the identifier ”organic-regs”.
Registering the table
Start by going to Settings / Targets
Settings → Targets
Pick a table with the format described above.
Add targets to dashboard widgets
