Amortization of Deferred Commissions

What's the best way to build a model to track and forecast the amoritization of deferred commissions? We know the amortization periods, deferred commssions on the balance sheet, and want to track the amortization over time in Anaplan.

Re: Amortization of Deferred Commissions

Your question is very large, but here's one thing: I'd say the "trick" is to have an additional time list (that you create) that you can cross with the anaplan time dimension in a module. This way you can load the commission amount (past and future to plan), spread it over the amortization period and see the deferred waterfall overtime.

Re: Amortization of Deferred Commissions

I've resolved this in a much easier way using periods.
