Manage Impact Goals

Goals can be created in Bright Impact to help you monitor and track various types of impact you want to achieve. Goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound.

Only one goal can be created per impact type. As impact is logged by your group throughout the website, your goal meter will show your progress. Objectives can be added to goals that can be achieved when a target impact is reached, all tasks are completed or both.
