What does this feature do?
Input Metrics shape your forecast by taking the numbers you provide and using them as the base for formulas and assumptions that describe the behaviors of your assets, customers, expenses, liabilities, etc.
Why should I care?
Your financial model is made entirely of, and controlled entirely by the manipulation of input metrics. Input metrics are also the only type of metrics that can have assumptions attached to them.
Where can I find it?
Input Metrics are only located on the assumptions page. Input Metrics can be found within any object’s drawer, accessed by either creating a new object with the purple action button or clicking an existing object’s “edit” button found within the 3-dot menu.
How should I use it?
Each input metric describes the title of the metric. For example, if your input metric is titled “Budget” then the number you enter will describe the amount you expect/want the budget to be. Fill in these metrics with data that pertains to the title of the metric as it relates to your business. Filling in all of the input metrics is essential to building a financial model that accounts for every part of your business.
