Create a Global Driver

When to use Global Drivers and how to create them

Before creating your first Global Driver please make sure to read about what is a Global Driver and review the Jirav Global Driver Model Map to familiarize yourself with how the data flows within the system.

In this example we will use a formula to calculate average revenue per headcount. The formula is:

Average Revenue per HC = Revenue / Total Cumulative HC

First you must create a custom line

Learn about creating custom lines in this Help Center article.

Go to Setup > Global Drivers > Add Driver

Name your Global Driver and select the output then create the formula; for a detailed explanation on this please see "Setting up Drivers in Jirav"

This global driver is now calculating the average revenue per employee not only in each plan you are working for different scenarios but also in your actuals; you can see this by going to the "Custom" module (Jirav Pro Accounts only) within plans or adding the Custom Line to the Executive Summary or Custom Report; here is an article that will walk you through report customization

The screen shot below shows the output of the Global Driver.  The plan cutover date is March 2018 so the calculated values before this are coming from the actual financial data you have imported, this allows you to track how you are doing not only historically but also see if you are forecasting appropriately.
