Cashflow forecasting Reports
Is it possible to add some forecasting reports so we can get a picture of future months & years based on existing data within Zoho Books?
There would be the option to select which data such as recurring Invoices or Expenses or budgets are included in the Cashflow forecast (or Projection) report?
I'm new to using Zoho books but would like accounting software which allows a future look at the business.
Ideally the report would also allow us to
Define if we want to include
Only certain aspects of the business such as certain customers.
As an example elsewhere I've heard that Xero (a competitor accounting software) as add ons available to allow forecasting, such as Vistr which is free.
Could you implement features such as this, or collaborate with a company such as Vistr?
Hope this is a popular idea and you can work on it soon as I've seen such requests going back a couple of years.

If you just want to see how these crypto trading bots function without using your own funds, you can select the “Test mode”. In order to start full-fledged trading, you need to select the “Work mode”.
If you are interested how to set up a crypto trading bot with https://cryptorobotics.co/crypto-trading-bots-the-ultimate-beginners-guide/:
Click Settings in the upper right corner.
Select an exchange.
As we have already mentioned, if you choose the Binance exchange, you do not have to go through the complicated verification process by creating a sub-account.
Choose a cryptocurrency for trading;
Select crypto pairs;
Specify timeframe and trade balance;
Indicate total balance.
In my case, all the reports are useless compared to forecast reports. When you run a company you need to see how much resources you will have in some time and what kind of investments you can do with savings you made. That should not be difficult to implement with already existing recurring bills/expenses features.

Did anyone get an official answer about this topic?
Because I was i QBO user integrating with Float. Because of that, I know what we are looking for.
If there is no official answer can anyone help me to be 100% or 99%, that Zoho it's not working in secret on this.
Because I can program a similar Float program.integrsted within Books. But all this work can be done if Zoho give us 2 years to sell the solution and recover the investment.
Are you considering paying extra for this feature? How much?
All this is to see if it's profitable go into this.
Totally agree. We desperately need the forecast cash flow

We have a strong need for zoho cash flow projection. Before migrating to Zoho Books we used Quickbooks and there were several cash flow projection custom applicaitons available Such as "FROG".
This is a much needed feature of Zoho. Being able to create a cash flow report based on an integration from Estimates within CRM is really important. It should also be possible to split the payments of Deal amounts over a number of months, adding a month, expected income value and expense value. Larger projects require split payments, with in and outgoing amounts set against 3-4 payments.

Why do sellers on eBay need inventory management software?
Inventory management involves the process of ordering, handling, storing, and processing a company’s inventory. This is done because, without an effective inventory management system, the full potential of the supply chain becomes unattainable.

This is critical. I would be happy to pay for it if an integration partner solved this need as well. Great example is Float with Xero (https://floatapp.com/xero-cash-flow-forecast/)
Totally agree. We desperately need the forecast cash flow
Totally agree. We desperately need the forecast cash flow. Now, we have to manually input another software called Pulse for forecast cash flow. It is very critical for us to be able to analyze the cash flow in incoming week.
We are realy needing this too! Please help us out Zoho
For any business, but particularly a small business, being able to predict when the 'crash' points may occur is vital. Recurring bills, expenses, sales invoices - it can't be that difficult to roll this out.
Like a previous comments, big improvement. Look after your customers Zoho, or someone else will.
Forecast reports are what stop me from fully using, and recommending, Zoho. Even elementary financial systems with functionality for recurring invoices/expenses/purchases provide a report to show monies required for payments(purchases/expenses) and monies expected(invoices).
It's astounding this requirement/sugesstion has so many upvotes and still, after 4.5 years, no functionality has been provided.
This can be easily accomplished used Zoho Analytics Application, we are Zoho applications building partner if interested to get help on this. Please feel free to contact us.
This one, we can do it in Zoho Analytics software.I am using this and it is fine.
To be able to include projected information as sales , collections , purchases , expenses , etc would a great improvement for cash flow functionality . Today we hae to do it manually in excel combining both info download from the accounting system and data projected in excel . Very time consuming and not a good solution. I stronlgly suggest ZOHO to develop a toll like this . I woul be happy to expand my input to this idea

I need this future for my business as I have to manually export data for analysis using spreadsheet, This takes a lot of time. It seems the Zoho team is not seeing this request. For the past 3 years, the Zoho has not said anything about the all important request.
We are currently evaluating an accounting / financial solution for our enterprise. Zoho Books is among the options, but without cashflow forecasting it will probably be discarded .
This is a good request..
