How to use the Messages window
The New ParishSOFT Accounting Dashboard
The Dashboard has a new feature (August 2017) for messages located in the lower right corner of the screen, replacing the Budget Graph. The graph is not gone, however, it has just been moved. Read on to find out more.
I used to see the Monthly Budget/History Bar Graph on my Dashboard. How can I access the Graph now?
To access the Monthly Expense and Budget Graph that was once on the dashboard, go into Reports, Analytics Reports, and select Monthly Budget/History (Graph). Scroll down to see the process.
Once you select the Monthly Budget/History (Bar Graph) you will see you have options. You may limit your report by Entity, Cost Center, Category, and Account. You may choose which reported amount uses the Blue Graph Bar or the Black Graph Bar: Current Year Actual or Current Year Budget. You may also choose to report on Income alone, Expense alone, or Income - Expense. Finally, you may select to include Inactive History Accounts.
