Input Flexibility

Forecaster has the flexibility to allow budget assumption to be input in several different formats. 

The typical method is via an Input screen where the lines are the financial account.  There is a unique screen for each department (or whatever segment(s) are being used) that is accessed via the “prompt” and controlled by the security assignment.  This method works well when a budgeter is focused on a single “department”.

An alternative to this method is to switch the lines (financial account) and the prompt (department).  A scenario where this would be useful is when the budget administrator would like to centrally budget for Rent Expense for ALL Departments on one screen.

The option to choose Departments as the Rows is found on the Input dialog box which is accessed by clicking Data and Input.  Before this option is available, a budget administrator must elect this feature in the Input Set definition which is accessed by clicking Setup, Budgets and Input Sets.

Forecaster also has an option to allow all segments to be input to from one screen.  This option is configured also configured in the Input Set definition, under the Options tab.
