New: Annual Parameters
The parameter screen accessed from Planning Dashboard now acts as the default values to use for all planning years but these values can now be set for an individual planning year e.g. different tutor rates for different years.
New: EAS and Funding Targets
Values can now be set for Earnings Adjustment as well as Income targets for Funding and Non-Funding income. These are used in the summary screen accessed from Browse Planning Provision where you can see how close actual values are towards these targets.
If you import funding from the FIS and/or charge for courses you can now see summaries for actual income and funding against the activity in both the provision screens and the administration screens.
Actuals also show in the Summary screen.
New: Hourly Funding Rates
