Cash Metrics

Cash metrics track current changes to the amount of existing subscriptions. They give a forecast on a business's expected cash flow based on current data rather than show the actual cash flow history.

Cash metrics are related to the account and the subscription.

Cash Metrics

Cash metric data model
Field Description
Subscription The related subscription (primary master-detail); the metric record is deleted when the subscription is deleted.
Account The related account (secondary master-detail); the metric record is deleted when the account is deleted.
Date The effective date of this metric (month and year, always first day of a month)
Amount The sum over all items of this month for the subscription
Month The month of the effective date
Year The year of the effective date

Depending on your process configuration, JustOn creates and updates cash metric records on subscription or item change. The conditions that trigger cash metric updates may include

  • Modified start/end date or activation status for subscriptions
  • Modified start/end date, activation status, billing period or modified quantity, price or discount values for items

One cash metric record corresponds to a monthly invoice run for a subscription. That is, JustOn "simulates" an invoice run per month and aggregates the amount of the resulting invoice line items for each subscription in the Amount field of the cash metric record.

Workflow details

If set up accordingly, JustOn creates and updates cash metric records when relevant fields of existing subscriptions or items change.

The following conditions apply:

  • Cash metrics reflect current values and do not look back. That is, a recent cash metric record cannot reproduce previous changes to a subscription or item.

    Consequently, JustOn cannot restore deleted cash metric records.

  • One cash metric record corresponds to a monthly invoice run for a subscription. That is, JustOn "simulates" an invoice run per month and aggregates the amount of the resulting invoice line items for each subscription in the Amount field of the cash metric record.

  • With respect to transactional items, the monthly amount of transactional items is derived from the Expected Revenue field of the item record (ONB2__ExpectedRevenue__c). If this field is empty, the relevant record will be ignored on metrics creation.
  • JustOn creates cash metrics up to the end of the subscription or item. If there is no end date, cash metric records are produced for a maximum of 12 months. If the automatic subscription renewal is enabled, cash metric records are produced for the defined extension period as well.
