Today, I wanted to spend some time talking about Adjustments in Microsoft Forecaster. This feature often comes up in discussions with customers as something they are not aware of or are unsure how to use.
Adjustments allow for quick and easy updates at the posting or summary level. This is extremely powerful if you need to increase Total Sales for a specific division. The adjustment will increase sales proportionally based on the current amounts.
Total Sales - $100,000 with a 15% adjustment
As I mentioned previously, adjustments can be used for summary or posting level data. This means you can update Net Income for a specific department, or update an individual account for a division of the company. You also have flexibility to select if an update should occur for a single period, or multiple periods in the budget.
Common scenarios where this feature is helpful:
You can find Adjustments under Setup | Budgets | Adjustments.
