Target Meter | Online Help - Zoho CRM

Target Meter

Target meter lets you set and monitor targets for your sales team. You can view the number of leads generated in the current year, annual revenue for last quarter, or sales target achieved in the past few months. You will not have to run through pile of reports to get these informations, all you need to do is choose a target meter and define the relevant parameters and get the data.

Let's take an example to understand this better. Say, Zylker Inc. wants to set targets for a period of six months for each region and keep track of any gap that may occur. They can choose the multibar target meter  style and set the target for the sales manager's. In additon, they can also set individual targets for each sales manager in case the expected revenue varies region wise. This data will give a comprehensive and clearer picture of the target that was set for each region or individual and the target that was achieved. 

Create a Target Meter

Based on your business requirement you can choose from 4 different types of Target Meters:

  • Dial Gauge (with max value)
  • Bar
  • Multiple Bar
  • Traffic Lights

  1. Click the Dashboards tab.
