Goals vs Targets

Goals are high-level containers that should be broken down into smaller Targets

Targets are measurable results, that, when completed, will also complete the Goal

How to create a Goal

  1. Go to the Goals page
  2. Click 'New Goal' and follow the steps
  3. Create Targets

Target types

  • Number: Track increases or decreases between any range of numbers. 
  • True/False: True or false Targets are simply done or not done.
  • Currency: Track your money with this Target type.
  • Tasks: Automatically tracks the completion of tasks and/or Lists. Use this if your Target is to complete a group of tasks.

As you update your Targets, your Goals will also automatically be updated based on the proportion of Targets completed.
