Real-Time Construction Accounting Software



Interactive Data Analysis™ and Pivot Tables®

Within the My Job Dashboard is an Interactive Data Analysis™ (IDA™) feature that enables users to view and manipulate their data with a spreadsheet-like screen form. This feature uses powerful Pivot Tables®, the Microsoft® name for an Excel® technique that is part spreadsheet and part database. Pivot Tables® categorize your data by group, and gives you counts, sums, and averages on your data. This data can even be copied and pasted into a spreadsheet. A Data Filter enables users to narrow the analysis to only the facts needed. Columns can be moved, removed and added.
