Overview

The Goals report located in the Export - Sidebar (web application) is useful to create custom report(s) that users can run to view the goals or Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) in Lilypad for each rep/user. 

NOTE: While Managers can pull reports on any user assigned to their team(s), Reps can only pull reports on themselves.
