Financial Management reports

The Financial Management application provides several financial reports in overview and dashboard modules.

These reports help you track where expenses are allocated and what kind of financial data is in the general ledger. In addition to the default reports, you can create custom reports that run on any table that the application uses. You can base reports on several components of the application, such as buckets, fiscal periods, and segments from the IT chart of accounts, including segments that you create.

The allocation data that the reports display are derived from allocations lines in the Cost Allocation [itfm_cost_allocation] table. Only the allocation lines marked final are included in reports.

Note: The overviews and dashboards contain a UI graphical element called Report Parameters that allows users to configure settings for the reports, such as the segments and fiscal period to display in the reports. Do not delete this widget.

By default, the reports show allocations from the Cost Allocation Aggregates [itfm_cost_allocation_aggregate] table, rather than the Cost Allocation [itfm_cost_allocation] table (starting with the Geneva release).

If you have the financial admin or analyst role, you can select a cost model to report against, starting with the Geneva release. If you have the financial user role, the cost model is determined by the main report settings.
