Trading Program’s Finance App functionality allows users to record and track payments received from suppliers against Trading Program-calculated deal earnings.
By clicking on Finance at the top of the page and then on Payment allocation in the drop-down menu, you will be able to search for an overview of earnings, receipts, adjustments and resulting balance per deal line.
In the panel on the right-hand side of your page, you can filter the search results using the following criteria:
Supplier · Choose one, or more, suppliers from the ‘My suppliers’ list (including suppliers for which you are the lead cash collector) or ‘All suppliers’ list (including all suppliers for which you have read access).
Scheme types · Choose from a list of configured scheme types.
Scheme start date, ‘From’ and ‘To’ · Enter a ‘From’ date to filter by scheme start date. Enter a ‘To’ date to filter by scheme end date.
Programme month · Choose a month to filter deal lines by programme month.
Payment frequency · Choose a payment frequency to filter deal lines by payment frequency.
Manually maintained earnings only · A Yes / No drop-down selection menu to restrict search results to deals which use manually maintained earnings plugins.
Show fully signed only · A Yes / No drop-down selection menu to restrict search results to schemes which are fully signed.
Once a search has been completed for one or many suppliers, the payment allocation report will be displayed (see example below). This report will provide full visibility of each deal’s earnings, allocated payments and adjustments. You are also able to ‘drill down’ and view these details at the deal line level.
Please note — your search criteria will be persisted for the duration of your session. Please click the Reset button to clear the criteria.
If you have filtered by multiple suppliers, you will be able to click on the Download button to generate a csv file of the on-screen search results.
Alternatively, click on a deal row in the listing to trigger a panel to appear from the right of the page. This panel will display the deal lines associated to the selected deal (as shown in the screenshot below).
Please note — a deal line is only visible in the payment allocation report once it has ended and a payment is therefore due. This is why not all of your deal lines may appear in the payment allocation report whilst you are mid way through a deal. For example, if you have a deal with payment frequency of end of program line, then you will not be able to see this deal line in the payment allocation report until the deal has past its end date.
