Supported file format: .csv/.xlsx only. Please convert all your files into a .csv/xlsx before attempting to import data to the web application.
There are 4 important things that you'd need to know about when you import sales goals from a file. They are described in detail below:
Preparing your CSV/XLSX file
The first row of the file will be treated as the header. Make sure the header rows have all the mandatory columns.
Fields available for mapping
- User email - Email of the user to whom the goal will be assigned
- Goal type - Specify whether it is a User goal or a Team goal
- Goal period - Whether it is a Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, or Yearly goal
- Goal start date - This should be either the first day of the week, month, quarter, or year depending on whether the period is weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly
- Goal end date - This should be either the last day of the week, month, quarter, or year depending on whether the period is weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly
- Target - What is the target of this goal (Must be a number)
- Team - This field is mandatory when the row contains a team goal
- Activity - The sales activity for which the target has to be set
b. Optional field
Outcome - The outcome of the sales activity selected
Note: The difference between the Goal start date & Goal end date should be one week, one month, one quarter, or one year depending on the goal period. For example, if you are setting a goal for the month of September 2021, then the goal start date should be 09/01/2021 and the Goal end date should be 09/30/2021.
To import team goals:
- You would need to have value as Team under the Goal type column and the team name under the Team column
- You need to have a row for each team member. In case you miss adding a team member in the file, the user won’t be considered as part of the team goals
- Summation of individual team members goals will be the team goal
