The system-related configuration options are accessed by using the Setups menu in the RevPro UI. Some basic configurations, such as the accounting calendar, currency, or security settings are usually completed during the RevPro implementation phase. Other configuration options are also provided for you to configure RevPro to meet your specific business needs.
Before you can start using RevPro, the following minimum system-related configurations are required:
- Accounting calendar
Accounting calendar is important in RevPro because it determines the way that your company accounts for revenue. It is also important to period-close and period-open activities.
Accounting calendar is set up during the RevPro implementation phase. After that, you can log in to RevPro to review the accounting calendar by navigating to Setups > Application > Accounting Calendar.
- Accounting structure
Accounting structure determines the account numbers to be associated with transactions, which is important to the success of further accounting transfer. The accounting structure must be configured based on your business needs. For more information, see Configure accounting structure.
- User roles and permissions
To protect the system from unauthorized operations, RevPro uses role-based access control. As part of system configuration, you must create the role-based access control policies in RevPro. For more information, see Manage user access.
- Currency format
The currencies that you use for transactions are predefined during the RevPro implementation phase. You cannot edit the standard code or location of the currency. However, you can configure the display format of each currency in use. For more information, see Configure currency format.
Many profiles are provided out-of-the-box for you to configure various RevPro functionalities from a central place. For more information, see Set up profiles.
Advanced configurations are optional in RevPro. Complete the advanced configurations as needed.
- To quickly view the KPIs of your interest, you can first create some chart layouts and then add them to your own custom dashboard. Then, whenever you log in to the system again, the custom dashboard will be displayed right after your login. For more information, see Create your custom dashboard.
- RevPro can be configured to function under different accounting principles so that you can integrate transaction data from the current GAAP to the future GAAP. For more information, see Integration of current GAAP and future GAAP.
- After your transaction data is uploaded to RevPro staging tables, the data validation process begins to ensure the data contains appropriate data points. Besides the predefined data validation rules, you can also set up your own validation rules. For more information, see Data validation process.
