After selecting Create New Tile or Edit for an existing tile, populate a Tile Name and then use the drop-down selections to choose what data will be pulled into the tile.  As shown in the example below, to get a cash line chart tile we've selected the "Cash on Hand" KPI from our KPI Library to show our actuals for a trailing 6 months (see: Ranges).​ The Preview area will update as you make selections to show what the tile will look like when finished.

allows you to select Monthly, Quarterly, Yearly, or Total.

The Range provides the user the ability to select varying lengths of time. It determines in what month(s) your capture will land in. For example, if you have an offset of -4, this means that you will look 4 months back. Say you have a starting date of September with an offset of -4, you would be looking (back) at data from May 1 forward.

The Display option can be set up as:

  • "Subtotal", which means we are only going to chart the top line, not the children
  • "Children", which means we are only going to chart the children.

Group By can be set by "Department" or "Account".

Show Actuals Until option Determine if all actuals that have been imported should be displayed or just actuals up until the Close Month. Choose Close Month to display actuals only up until the close month or Max to display all actuals available in your account.
