Credit and collections management Power BI content

This topic describes what is included in the Credit and collections management Microsoft Power BI content. It explains how to access the Power BI reports, and provides information about the data model and entities that were used to build the content.

Overview

The Credit and collections management Power BI content was created for credit and collections managers, and collections clerks. It provides key credit and collections metrics, such as days sales outstanding, balance overdue, credit exposure, and customers that are over their credit limit. It uses transactional data, and provides aggregate views of credit and collections across all companies. It also provides a breakdown per company, customer group, and customer.

This Power BI content consists of 10 report pages:

  • Two overview pages (one page for a credit overview and one page for a collections overview)
  • Eight details pages that provide details of credit and collections metrics that are sliced and diced across various dimensions

All the amounts are shown in the system currency. You can set the system currency on the Systems parameters page.

By default, the credit and collections data for the current company is shown. To see the data across all companies, assign the CustCollectionsBICrossCompany duty to the role.

Accessing the Power BI content

If you're using Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition July 2017 update, the Credit and collections management Power BI content is shown in the Customer credit and collections workspace.
