The Plan Metrics table allows your team to model toward a goal. The Headcount metric is automatically included when creating plan. Reference the Plan Metrics  topic for more information on adding additional metrics to your plan.

For each metric, the following information is available:


Metric associated with the Starting, Current, and Target values to the right.

The difference between the starting value and the current plan value is displayed in parenthesis to the right of the Current value, denoting the changes that have been made.


This is the desired (or goal) value for a metric. To set a target, click on the Planning_Edit_Metrics.png icon (at the top of the Plan Metrics table).
