Order intake

This chart shows the total order value of new deliverables by month. This is a very important indicator of your ability to make future billable hours and to utilize resources efficiently.

A project has to be in the Win stage before the order value of its deliverables will be added to this chart. If the project is in the Win stage when the deliverable is created, the deliverable’s order value will be added to the month of the deliverable’s creation. So if the deliverable was created in March 2020, it’s order value will be added to the chart for the month of March 2020.

If, however, the deliverable belongs to a project that is still in the Pending opportunity stage, the deliverable’s order value will not be added to the chart until the project hits the Win stage. At this point the deliverable’s order value will be added to the current month, the 'win' month. For example, let’s say a deliverable is created in March 2020, but the project to which it belongs is in the Pending opportunity stage. The project is moved to the Win stage in April 2020. In this scenario, the deliverable’s order value will be added to the April 2020 dataset.

To ensure this chart is accurate, do the following:

  • A soon as an opportunity is won, change its status to WIN so it will reflect in the correct month.

  • Update any revenue for opportunities as needed.
