When you assign a dimension to an account, those dimensions become another way of storing detailed information within the account.
To add one or more dimensions to accounts:
On the Accounts spreadsheet, select an account.
Select Accounts, then Dimension, and then Assign Dimension.
In Available Dimensions, select one or more dimension and click Add.
Selected dimensions move from Available Dimensions to Assigned Dimensions.
Optional: Select a dimension in Assigned Dimensions, and click Remove to remove dimensional assignments.
Strategic Finance adds an instance of that account for each member. In the example following, the account Other Operating Expenses (v1090) is assigned to the dimension Time, and displays instances for each member: Year, Month, and Week. See Viewing Dimensional Accounts .
