Goals Plugin

Jump to: navigation, search

The Goals Plugin assists with assigning goal amounts for employees based on user generated credentials. Goals can have a base period and a goal period. This plugin has many similarities to the MBO Plugin; however, the goals plugin does not require that goals be set at a customer specific level. In fact, the plugin is designed to pro-rate any goal targets, and then those goals can be presented at per customer level to handheld users.

Another benefit of the Goals Plugin is that goals are updated automatically and immediately. Whenever a user elects to view the setup or progress of a goal within eoStar, the data presented is the latest available.

See Goals for more information on how to set up a goal.
