Pivot options are based on the imported dataset, whereas the options for filtering are created during column mapping.
The 2 main pivots for this dashboard allow you to select the group and the account you want to compare period-over-period.
For example, if you select the "Transaction structure" group and the "Revenue" account, the Prior period comparison dashboard will update the visualizations and tables below to display all Revenue accounts with transactions that contain a similar structure.
Filters may be generated by MindBridge (such as Source) or created by adding columns for filtering during column mapping (such as Region and Department) and allow you to select multiple values to filter on.
- Enter or select a filter from the available menu(s).
Apply the filter to update the dashboard.
