You can find the Intensity Targets grid in the main Manage menu under the Targets and Rates section.
Once you are in the Intensity Targets grid, click on Create New.
You will now see a form to create a new Intensity Target.
Name. The name of the target. It's a good idea to include the year(s) the target is for in the name.
Description - Optional. Useful for recording the purpose of the target you are configuring.
Target Type. This will default to the standard intensity target.
Named. This will be a list of all the ratios that you have configured. If you have not configured any ratios yet the list will be blank and you won't be able to create your target.
Measured in. This will default to the unit of measure you set for your ratio.
Effective from. This is the start period of your target. When capturing new target data in this container this will be the default start date.
Effective to. This is the end period of your target. When capturing new target data in this container this will be the default end date.
Target status. Only active targets are available in the Rate Analysis dashboard.
In addition to the above elements of an intensity target, the grid will have a number of additional columns.
Months Covered. This is based on the Target Data within the Target and indicates the maximum number of months between the earliest and latest month of target data.
Location Targets. This tells you how many months of target data are recorded against locations. A one-year target for one location would mean 12 months of targets.
Group Targets. This tells you how many months of target data are recorded against groups.
Organization Targets. This tells you how many months of target data are recorded against the organization.
Right-clicking on a target in the grid will bring up a list of actions you can take.
Target Data. This will take you to the full period target data grid. This is the best page for entering target data if you don't need to vary your values monthly.
Monthly Target Data. This will take you to the monthly target data grid. This is the best page for entering target data if you need to adjust your values month to month.
Edit Target. Edit the parameters of the target.
Delete. Delete the target and all of its target data.
Activate Targets. Activate the selected targets. Note - you can only have one active target per Ratio or Rate for any particular time period.
Deactivate Targets. Deactivate the selected targets.
Note: For intensity targets, any changes to the status of the target will be immediately reflected in dashboards and reports as this target data is live (accessed directly) and not based on the daily refresh of target data.
Generate Blank Template. Currently unavailable for intensity targets.
Extract Target data. Currently unavailable for intensity targets.
Audit History. See all changes made to the selected target. This does not show you changes made to the target data stored in the target.
You can compare against your intensity targets in the Rate Analysis dashboards by choosing the Compare with Target option (note the compare with target option only appears if you have active intensity targets configured).
This will automatically compare your actual Ratio/Rate/Intensity data to any active targets for the Rate/Ratio specified on the dashboard.
To report on your intensity targets you will need to have a custom report configured.
