My business has an allup target for this year's subscription revenue (e.g. $100,000). We came out of last year with revenue (e.g. $50,000) that we expect to maintain, but there's no guarantee that we will. Subscription revenue comes in monthly so I need to be able to measure our yeartodate progress towards monthly goals. Monthly goals will grow linearly since a month's goals will include the previous month plus growth. All of the monthly goals should sum up to the year's revenue target. I'm hoping there is a means by which I can calculate the monthly goals. Thoughts? Last edited by jfattic; October 10th, 2017 at 10:14 AM.

What d'heck is an "allup target"? Your post is almost impossible to "follow". Can you clarify what you're after, using an actual example; thank you. Last edited by Denis; October 10th, 2017 at 06:05 PM.

The idea is to create a variable that, month by month, changes depending on the month's revenue which gives the likelihood of hitting or exceeding some target value at the end of the year.

100,000 = SUM of all 12 monthly goals 50,000 = last year's revenue; alternatively, I also have the final month revenue from last year (let's say it's 20,000 for this example) Example: Month 01 target = 20,000 + new1 Month 02 target = 20,000 + new1 + new2 Month 03 target = 20,000 + new1 + new2 + new3 etc. up to Month 12 I was thinking that I could use y=mx+b, where b=20,000 (slopeintercept), but since I only have the annual target, I'm not sure how to proceed.
