SegmentInfo - Segment Search

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Overview

Segments is a dataportal which allows you to filter for every segment within your chart of accounts and allows you to use your groupings within your filter choices. For example, if you are looking for accounts in Revenue , simply search for Revenue. If there is a segment that represents your business unit (such as Location or District) and security is enabled, it can be used to create dynamic reports that list the business units you or your team have rights to.

To search segment groups, there is a related dataportal GroupInfo that provides all the groups an individual segment code may be a part of.
