Entering negative revenue amounts

There may be cases where you need to represent negative numbers in your revenue forecast, such as showing a discount or including a large refund of a previous sale. This isn't a common scenario for forecasting, but if you need to, you can use negative numbers in these types of revenue streams.

Negative amounts in unit sales revenue streams

When you enter either a Unit sales revenue stream, you can enter negative numbers to represent your units sold. These numbers, calculated with the unit price you enter, will produce negative totals.

If you're entering a constant amount of negative units sold each month, enter the negative number as shown below:

If you're entering varying amounts over time, enter the negative numbers representing units sold for each month as shown below:
