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.

Please note

Steep currently supports monthly targets, and interpolates a daily target pace based on the monthly values.

Target table format

ColumnExample valueTypeDescription
seriesBudget 2022StringTarget series name
metricregistrationsStringMetric identifier
time2022-04-01Date or TimestampTarget date (month)
value20000NumericTarget value

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.
