FAQ: How can I create a consolidated forecast in Fathom?

Currently, you can create a forecast at the individual company level or at the overall group level. You’re not able to consolidate the individual forecasts of each subsidiary company to create the consolidated group forecast.

You will have full functionality at the individual and group level, and are able to set value rules, timing rules and all other settings options on the consolidated Chart of Accounts. The Chart of Accounts will display according to how it is set up in the group’s Settings ‘Step 3 - Chart of Accounts’.
