Our Re-Forecaster tool allows you to quickly and efficiently enter your years Forecast or Budget month-by-month.
The tool can be found by heading into your trackers and clicking on the "Tools" button as shown below.
The Re-Forecaster lets you customise what year and transaction type you're entering in:
- choose to enter Budget or Forecasted transactions via dropdown menu
- change the year via the arrows in the top right hand corner
Please be aware that when running it on a forecast basis, you can enable the opening balance to reflect the actuals for that month (See below). If you select actuals to the current month, it will show them as the present day actual quantities.
Click the the stock class and transaction type you wish to work in (e.g. R1 Heifer purchases).
Go through and add the total figures of budgeted or forecasted transactions month by month (e.g. total amount of R1 Purchases for the month of June 2016).
There are options to enter the Quantity, Weight kg/head and amount – once those are all correct click the tick shown below to save the transaction and move onto the next month.
Note: When creating Aging transactions you only need to create an "Aging Out" transaction as the "Aging In" will automatically populate depending on what you've selected as the "Target Stock Class".
The Re-Forecaster tool is for quick and summarised transaction entries – you can only add one line for a transaction type per month, with the transaction date defaulting to the beginning of the month (e.g. 1 January 2016).
If you want budgets and forecasts to be more detailed (e.g. specify dates of transactions and have multiple purchase lines within one month), it’s best to manually add Forecasted or Budget transactions line by line in the tracker.
