When creating a dashboard, we only have the option to choose "Accounts by ... Year, Quarter, Month" which means if you choose 'by year' to see everything at once, it splits up the detailed transactions by calendar year - there is no way to choose Fiscal year. If someone clicks on the first blue bar, to view their actual expenses, the comparison of Actual to Budget will only include months in 2017. They then have to click on the second blue bar to see months in 2018.
The system allows me to choose a date range (fiscal year) for the “Post Date” but it still separates the output data by calendar years. Currently, I am unable to roll out Dashboards in NXT webview because it will create confusion for our non-financial staff.
We should be able to view all months of the fiscal year added together on the output! See attached for screenshot of what I'm talking about.
