Rolling Forward Your Schedule
When you click into the amortization module for a new period, you will be greeted by an empty schedule. This is because you must actively roll forward your schedule from the previous period in the same way that documents are rolled forward in the Close the Books section of FloQast.
To do this:
- Click Upload in the top-right of the amortization module
- Check off the box for "Roll forward prior period"
- Click "Skip, I don't have a file to upload"
Note: Rolling your amortization schedule forward is the trigger that lets the system know you are finished with the prior period and puts a lock on that schedule so no further edits can be made. If you would like to unlock the previous period, the current one will need to be Reset.
The "Select File" portion of the Upload File section is for users who want to roll their schedules forward and simultaneously add new items; however, we recommend doing this in two steps as you will need to ensure your Settings appropriately match the file you'll be uploading with additional items.
