Adding annotations and goals to your charts are a great way to indicate targets you want to hit or point out changes on your graphs for your clients.
These are available for a large number of widgets in your reports and on custom dashboards.
You can add goals and annotations to your date-based line and column charts from your widget settings window.
How to add goals to your widgets
Goals will show on your line and date-based column chart widgets as a dotted line along with a text to represent your targets.
To add goals, start by hovering over the widget you want to customize, and click the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the widget. Then, click "Edit".
Click the "+" icon next to "Goal Thresholds" and add your desired goal values. Then click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the "Edit Widget" screen.

To add notes, follow the steps described above to open your widget settings window.
Click the "+" icon next to "Annotations", then choose the desired date and add a comment. Don't forget to click the "Save Settings" button to keep the changes!
