Revenue Distribution Help
Hello all ,
I am trying to find the best way to distribute forecasted revenue across multiple periods based on a distribution chart (so to say). I will attach screen shots to better explain.
Each month has a forecasted value:
Each month's forecasted revenue will be allocated based on this chart: Period 1 would correspond to the first value that revenue is multiplied by.
This is the calculation that I would like Anaplan to conduct:
The result I am looking for :
I need some help on how I should dimension this and the best way to solve this in Anaplan. Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi @SBlaeser
In this scenario, basically you need cumulative value of last all months with existing month.
It can be achieved as below.
Forecasted Amount — This is by Month
Percentage value——This is by MonthForecasted with Percentage value — This is by month and Formulate as Forecasted Amount * Percentage value.
Cumulate period count ———This is by Month and each month will have 1, 2, 3, 4, corresponding and will reset as 1 for next year ——Formula——if previous (Cumulate period count) = 0 then 1 else if previous(parent(parent(item(time)))) <> (parent(parent(item(time)))) then 1 else 1+Final forecasted amount — This is by month and Formula—Cumulate (Forecasted with Percentage value, false, Cumulate period count)
Let me know if this helps out.
Thanks

@SBlaeser You can also check Profile formula if you are only interested in Final Total column. It will profile the % spread for each period and cumulate values accordingly and give you total value in your line item
