Using the Tab
In order to, for example, see if receiving from a particular Supplier has been increasing or decreasing.
First choose the required time period using the Date Dimension (Business day) filter under Property Details
Within the Account Details filters, set the Supplier filter as required
Refer to the summary headline figure for an overall indication for the year
Scroll down to the Vendor Spend Trend to see how this has moved, and scroll up to the Received Vs Last Year trend graph to see how the figure has changed compared to the same month last year
Refer to the Receiving by Property report to see if any properties dominate spend, and if so it may be preferable to apply a Property filter to look at the trend for this Property alone, which may be driving overall trends
