1. Financial Health Check Dashboard
The Health Check Dashboard just got a lot more powerful with the addition of a new tab for enhanced insights into total amounts of unmapped PO’s and actuals. This enhancement allows users to easily see where unmapped PO’s and actuals are located within the hierarchy, along with their dollar values, for quick and easy mapping and reconciliation. This allows marketers to stay more easily aligned and on target with spend, while being an excellent management tool for System Administrators.
Drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org today to find out how you can start using this new dashboard.

2. Small Changes, Big Wins
Allocadia has introduced some small workflow changes aimed at improving the usability of our platform for big impact results based on feedback from you, our users.
Multicurrency Entry Quick View Filter
Users now have an easier way to view where multicurrency entries have been made using the in-cell multi-currency calculator within a budget, with the introduction of a new Show Original Currency filter. This filtered view highlights cells where multi-currency entries have been made and includes both the original entry dollar value or base value and the currency.

Filter Selection Maintained
Filter selections for scenario tags, forecast tags, approvals, $0 rows and the new multicurrency filters are now maintained between budgets in a given hierarchy, allowing you to move between budgets and not have to re-filter the information.
PO Splitting Enhancements
The addition of a PO split column on the PO Panel allows for easy viewing of completed PO splits for specific activities. If a PO is not split, it will display as 100% to acknowledge full allocation to the current activity.
The PO Panel will also feature a tool tip over currency cells for a view of the total PO amount and the PO split without ever needing to open the edit page.
Warning for Deleting Hierarchy Items
A validation prompt to ensure Home tab folders and budgets are not deleted by accident. As a System Administrator, you will now be asked to verify any deletion to the home tab hierarchy by manually entering the name of the folder you wish to delete to avoid unintentional loss of data.
