Create a Target or Baseline In a Bar/Line Chart

1. Add a new series to your Bar/Line chart

2. Use the REPEAT() function to repeat the value you need
3. Use the COUNT() function wrapped around your Results Reference of the X-axis to count the number of points we need to repeat our value

4. Modify the Series' type into a "Line" via the Properties, and play around with the styling

**Another useful scenario would be to use the Average revenue or Average values of your main series, to calculate your Target value or Baseline value:

    That works if the target is the same for every month.  What about if it is different?  I've come across this with two customers so far and haven't found a workaround they will accept.

    I can create a dot for the target by combining chart types a bit like you've done there, but can't create a line, so it's not easy to see.  Also can't stop Klipfolio from "connecting the dots" whenever I hover over with the mouse.

    Any solution?

    Example mock up (imagine this is "Sales v Target for February 2020"):

    If you want each of these bars to have separate targets, without the connect-the-dots when hovering, you could try separate gauge klips. Would that work for this scenario?
