Navigate to the Plan Item that you'd like to add a metric for and pull up the plan item's details. Once in the details menu, click the blue 'Create Metric' button in the top right-hand corner.
After clicking the “Create Metric” button, the ‘Add Metric’ menu will appear. You can create either a Simple or an Advanced Metric. If you would like to learn how to set up an Advanced metric, please see the Creating an Advanced Metric article for details.
Complete a few fields of information to begin tracking a metric for your plan:
- Metric Unit: a dollar amount, a percentage, or a number
- Tracking Success: how you would like to track and visualize success for this metric. You can track: maintain between a baseline and target, stay above or below a baseline, or move from a baseline to a target value. Once selected, make sure to input your custom baseline and target values.
- Metric Calculation: select whether the metric will be provided by the Assigned User with regular progress updates, or calculated automatically based upon other items' metric values.
- Initial Value: Make sure to provide an initial starting value for your metric.
Once you have completed all information, including the Initial Value for the metric, click the 'Save Metric button.
