How do I use my Dashboard?
The dashboard in your account gives you a quick snapshot of your business' finances so you can see your outstanding invoices, profit, and where your spending is going.
- Outstanding Revenue
- Monthly Recurring Revenue (Select)
- Total Profit
- Revenue Streams
- Unbilled Time
This graph shows you which Invoices are:
- Overdue (has passed the Due Date of an Invoice)
- Outstanding (unpaid and not yet passed the Due Date of an Invoice)
Together, these produce the Total Outstanding amount.
You can hover over each section of the graph which will show you specific Invoices populating that amount.
Click on the View Invoices link if you'd like to be taken to the list of Invoices populating this total. Note: The Total Overdue on the list includes both Active and Archived overdue Invoices, and you'll only see the list of Active invoices if you click on the View Invoices link.
If you invoice in multiple currencies, you can switch by clicking on the currency button next to the Outstanding Revenue title:
Monthly Recurring Revenue (Select)
This graph takes all available Recurring Templates and Retainers and averages it over the time period covered by these Invoices. The sum of all recurring revenue is split equally over every month in that time period, as well as any forecasted revenue. You can hover over each data point to see how much it has changed compared to the previous month if you've added any new recurring revenue.
This is different from the Recurring Revenue Report, which shows the total revenue from any Recurring Templates and Retainers generated in that time period only, with no averaging or splitting the revenue equally.
You can customize the view by clicking on the date range next to Monthly Recurring Revenue. You're able to change between Last 12 Months or Next 12 Months and the Currency if you're billing in multiple currencies. If you select Next 12 Months, you'll also have the option to check off the box to Apply an estimated growth rate based on your historical data to see forecasted revenue.
This graph shows you a visual picture of your profit and expenses over a period so you can get a sense of how healthy your business is. Payments you've received from an Invoice are recorded as income (green), and Expenses you've spent are recorded as loss (red) with the Total Profit in the corner.
This graph is run in Collected format, meaning it looks at the date payments were received for any Invoice regardless of the Invoice's date of issue. Draft Invoices are not included.
Hover over any point to see which Invoices or Expenses were recorded for that month/quarter.
You can customize this view by clicking on the button next to Total Profit. You're able to change the date range, whether you want it grouped by month or quarter, and the currency if you're billing in multiple currencies.
This graphs illustrates where your revenue is coming from, both from your Other Income and from your paid Invoices (Sales Taxes are excluded) in the date range specified. Categories you log as Other Income as will show up here as separate streams.
You can customize your Revenue Streams view by clicking on the button next to Revenue Streams. You're able to change the date range and toggle between currencies.
Hover over any of the sections in the graph to get a breakdown of the totals and a quick link to the entries making up the total for that particular revenue stream.
This shows you a pie chart of where your money is going in Expenses in each parent category (from the Expenses section of your account).
You can customize your Spending view by clicking on the button next to Spending. You're able to change the date range and toggle between currencies.
This shows you all unbilled time in your Time Tracking section. You can customize the date range by clicking on the button next to Unbilled Time.
Hover over any block of tracked time for a Client and click on the Generate Invoice link to quickly bill for the block of time.
