Close Month

Set Jirav to use your accounting system close month or set your own close month to update reports within Jirav automatically

As part of your monthly close process you are likely closing the month in your accounting system.  Jirav as the ability to read this close month from the accounting system and automatically roll forward dashboard tiles.  This removes the administration of having to go into the tiles and update them manually.
Here is a help article on how to set your Dashboard Tiles to use the close month. 
Here is a step by step guide for how to use the Close month in your Jirav Company file.
Please note that Jirav does not have the ability to make any changes to your accounting system so any changes to the close month on the Jirav Company file does not impact your accounting system.

Step 1: 
Go to the Company menu and select "Setup"

Step 2: 
Within the Main Settings  at the bottom of the "Company Setup" is the "Close Month"selection box.
Depending on the accounting system you are using will be the name of that system; for example you could be using Netsuite so the selection would say "Netsuite Close Month"
In order to update Jirav to the most recent close month from your accounting system you will need to import actuals from your financial system from within the Actuals Module.

Pro Tip: If the close month is not set for any period in the accounting system then the only option is a custom date - please see step 3 below.
