Reporting Structures

  1. What are reporting structures
  2. How to add  a structure
  3. How to edit a structure
  4. How to manage categories

Reporting structures is a multifunctional button. As a standard, you will locate your budget information here and if you choose to edit it, you will be able to view your different budget categories and see how many accounts you have linked to it.

You can add, edit, or delete current budget categories or link/unlink a general ledger account’s budget category from this screen. Please note that you won’t be able to capture a new budget here, for that you will still refer to Finances > Annual Budgets.

It also allows you to add new structures whereby you can choose which accounts you want to see on this structure. This mostly applies to schools that have a hostel, a preschool or an aftercare for which they would want separate structures for reporting.  For example, when setting up a structure for a hostel, you can choose to link only hostel accounts which could include both Income/Expense accounts and Balance Sheet accounts.

When printing the Reporting Structure report for a specific structure, you would be able to view data in a view resembling an Income Statement.

How to add a structure
When adding a structure you would need to choose which type of accounts you want to link to this structure, i.e. income accounts, expense accounts or balance sheet accounts.

  1. Click on the “add” button
  2. Add the reporting category name in Afrikaans
