Scenario Dimension

The Tax Provision metadata file contains a default Scenario named Actual, which is used to enter the tax application data. The default view for the scenario is set to YTD. The default frequency is set to MTD for entering data on a monthly basis. You can change this setting if you enter data in a different frequency.

The ZeroView settings for both adjusted and unadjusted data are currently set as YTD. You can change other settings based on your application needs, and include additional scenarios for review or analysis.
