Generating a Payment Forecast

The Payment Forecasting feature calculates future amounts due/received on a contract, including any percentage increment to the payment amount due/received. The feature is available for every payment stream stored in the Contract Profile.

The payment forecasts associated with a contract are viewed from the Payments browse screen in a Contract Profile.
