Targets tab-delimited upload

The Targets report option in SiteCatalyst works quite well with creating dashboards that include trended view of KPIs versus forecast information.  A trended by week view of the last 4 weeks of how Visits, Orders, Revenue, AOV, and Conv. Rate are performing is beneficial to the business in regards to allowing to see the trend of performance and to gauge whether a poor performing week in an abnormaly or an actual trend.

 

As recently as four months ago I was able to upload a full year of by week forecast targets via a tab-delimited file in SiteCatalyst..  This worked out great as I would receive forecast information from business teams in excel files (with a variety of formating, yet always in an excel).  I could simply copy and paste the target amounts into a tab-delimited file, upload, and then add the report to a weekly dashboard.

 

According to ClientCare this option was removed four years ago with the release of SC V14.0.  This can't be true as I have only used v14 & v15 and have been able to upload tab-delimited target files.

 

  I think it would be beneficial to add the tab-delimited upload file option back to Target reports.

DEFINITELY! Targets are useless for us if we aren't able to upload. (Not about to manually input  5,000 data points that we want to track against)
