The Home Tab Hierarchy is the foundation of budgeting and planning within Allocadia for each fiscal year. It is a level based structure that consists of Folders, Sub-folders, and workspaces that allow for categorization of marketing spend and often reflects the marketing team's organizational structure. The Hierarchy is created during implementation with consultation from the Allocadia Team.
To create a Hierarchy for a given fiscal year
- On the Home Tab, click New button and select Folder from the drop-down list
- Name the Folder
Best Practice: The top-level folder is always named with the name of the organization and the year. For example, Allocadia 2017
- Click the Create button
Next Steps: Once the top-level folder is created and the structure of the hierarchy is decided. Continue to add folders and budgets by selecting the New button and adding elements as required.
