On every Financial Manager and Financial Farmer farm, there's a dashboard available which can be access by clicking the name of the farm in the top left hand corner.
Depending on the type of farm you're on, the dashboard will show a range of things. These can include:
- Your closing cash position (graph)
- Profit and loss for the year with forecast variance (graph)
- Shortcuts to the production trackers you’ve set up
- An audit log, detailing any major changes made in your account
- Dairy financial summary for farms with milk trackers
Closing cash position graph
The closing cash position can be run for actuals, or actuals + forecasts by using the global date settings in the top-centre of your screen.
These numbers shown flow through from your cash flow report and display your Closing Cash Position each month based on the accounts you've got setup as banks in Figured (which you can see at any time under Accounting > Default bank). This is compared to your selected Annual Plan which can be changed in the Planning tab under Snapshots.
If you hover over any of the months, you’ll see the Closing Cash Position in more detail.
Variance by category graph
The variance by category can be run for actuals, or actuals + forecasts by using the global settings in the centre of your screen.
It pulls through the net profit of both the Annual Plan and actual + forecast and shows the variance between the two. It's essentially a visual representation of a full year variance P&L report for A + F vs Annual Plan.
With actuals + forecasts at the start and budget at the end, each bar is the variance between these for a particular report category.
