Hi ,

I have a Service Level Target for one of my team,. It has a monthly Target.

But I want to calculate the target dynamically based on the past performance.
For an example for the first 5 Days of operation if the team achieved less than the target, then we optimize the daily target in order to catch p the monthly target achievement.

I have attached the sample file, but the target is actually the monthly figure, I am looking forward to get a formula to calculate the dynamic daily targets.

The following formula will calculate your dynamic daily target based on past data:
=(DAY(EOMONTH(B1,0))*B3-SUM(\$A2:A2))/(DAY(EOMONTH(B1,0))-DAY(B1)+1)

You may copy this formula across.

Note that the formula will predict values greater than 100% when it becomes impossible make your monthly target achievement. If you don't want to display values greater than 100%, then use:
=MIN(100,(DAY(EOMONTH(B1,0))*B3-SUM(\$A2:A2))/(DAY(EOMONTH(B1,0))-DAY(B1)+1))
