Make Server Revenue Forecast report display monthly stats just like the Income Forecast report

Glenn Rowe shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

Currently the Income Forecast report has monthly stats but the Server Revenue Forecast report only has the individual stats broken up into columns. There is currently no way to see what profit (Profit=Revenue-Expenses) the server has on a given month.

I understand that the handling of non-monthly billing cycles will bring an issue but all that has to be done is the provision for some choices... Non-monthly billing can either be displayed on the month the invoice is due or it can be averaged out throughout the year. Personally I would like like to see it display it when the invoice is due for cashflow reasons... I will be able to see when the cash is coming in and when it is going out. I do understand the need to see it the other way though so having the choice might be good.

As I am writing this, I just realized that the current annual totals might be sufficient for those wanting it averaged and the monthly breakdowns might be good for those wanting to see cashflow.Anyway... I'll be interested to see the thoughts of others on this one.

Another interesting thought... Since an Income Statement shows the company's Revenues minus the company's Expenses, would this report not be more adequately named Server Income Forecast or Server Profit Forecast as it attempts to take into consideration both the Revenue side of the server and the Expense side of the server?
