The Financial Dashboard provides a high level overview of key financial data so that your Accounting Admins and Managers can assess a store's financial standing for a given day, week, month, period, and/or year compared to the same time frame for a selected prior year without the need to run reports. 


Users with the necessary security access can build out Financial Dashboards for any User by updating their Report Role to include one or more Dashboard Widgets. Once access is provided, Users can begin analyzing the financial standing of one or more Restaurant Locations by updating the Date Settings and reviewing the widget data. Users also have the ability to customize and rearrange their dashboards as needed to make financial review quick and easy. 

  • Note: Users who are not given access to dashboard widgets will not be able to access the dashboard.



Important Note


The Financial Dashboard is available for Customers who are currently utilizing Custom Financial Reports. If your Organization does not currently use Custom Financial Reports, contact your Coach/CSM or R365 Support to learn more about this add-on feature.
