If you are managing a sales team—or if you are goal-oriented, you will want to make use of the closed sales to date component. This component offers a bit more customization opportunities than the other components. You can add a specific target goal and even include breakpoint or milestones that will visually show you how close you are to achieving your goal.
You will find the Activities by User and Opportunities by User components on the ACT! default Dashboard. Both components are ideal candidates for targets.
