This month, the R&D team continued to work on adding more ways for you to customize the presentation of reports and dashboards. We also worked on making Jirav easier to use with improvements to planning.
Here’s everything that’s new in October:
- Assumptions flyout in Plans
- New options in reports to calculate % of budget
- Rename reports at the time of publishing
- Display options for time trended graph in Executive Summary Report
- Ability to set # of hours worked/week for hourly employees
- Driver details visible for read-only users
Let’s dive in!
Assumptions flyout in Plans
Ever wonder what assumptions are used in a table? Looking for an easier way to experiment with different business scenarios and see the impact in real time? With the introduction of the new assumptions flyout, we hope to make it easier for you to play with assumptions, see the impact in the table in real time, and find the right assumption value for your business.
New options in reports to calculate % of budget
A lot of users want an easy way to calculate the % of budget already spent to date, so we added two options under “variance %” calculation in reports so that you can add such metrics into your report to help you and your stakeholders make better decisions.
Rename reports at the time of publishing
We’ve made it easier for you to give reports the right name before you publish them.
Display options for time trended graph in Executive Summary Report
You can now turn the time trended graph on and off in the Executive Summary Report. You can also change the periodicity of the graph to annually, monthly, or quarterly.
Ability to set # of hours worked/week for hourly employees
Do you have hourly employees on your payroll that you are bringing in from your workforce system? You can now update the average number of hours they work per week in Setup>Company>Staffing to make your forecast more accurate.
Driver details visible for read-only users
People that have read-only access to a plan (i.e. user role = “viewer: all” and “basic,” plus users with “view with comments” access to a shared plan) can now see details of drivers in order to better understand the inputs and assumptions used in a model.
