By default, LivePlan takes all the forecast details you've entered, and compiles them down to totals for display in the Profit & Loss statement. This is generally the preferred format for lenders and investors, but there may be cases where you'll need to present a plan document that contains more detail.
Note: If you just need to share some of your in-progress forecast data with a colleague, you can also print reports from the Forecast tab.
You can always add an Appendix chapter to your plan before you download it. This added chapter will display the Profit & Loss with a variety of extra detail options.
Note: The Appendix will only display in the downloaded plan. You will not see it in the app.
