Power BI Goals can be used with the Service. If you choose to Goal visual, you can also create them directly inside the service. You can create different goals with a hierarchy and assign them to certain users. But if the goal has change or the status of the achievements, you can very easily inform the users.

To create a dynamic lableing, I have create a report page with the KPI’s. To be honest, I think this is oversized, I think it could be more easier if you can point directly to the underlying measures.
