What is a distribution?
A distribution is you assigning where or what a crop sold relates to (i.e. the crop season), and it determines where the income sits in your financial reports.
Every crop sale in Figured must have a distribution created directly in the tracker or via an allocation.
When creating a new sale in the tracker, you can immediately distribute the sale to whichever trackers you need to.
Figured uses First In, First Out (FIFO) to determine the distribution when creating a new sale via the allocator.
Example & how to edit the distribution
Step 1: Allocate as a sale for the product Wheat Grain
You must select a product and enter a quantity when recording a sale via allocation.
Step 2: This creates an entry in the crop sales and product tracker page for you
It automatically distributes based on FIFO; in this case, it's distributed to the product tracker because I have no harvested Wheat Grain on hand from any of my Wheat trackers.
Step 3: Figured displays the sale in reports based on the distribution
My sale of Wheat Grain has been distributed to the wheat tracker, so it sits under Wheat Income.
Step 4: Edit the default distribution to change where it sits in the reports
Now that the distribution has changed, it sits in a different place in my reports, under Other Income, in this case with other sales that also are attributed to that.
