One of the widgets on the Essentials dashboard is called How your business is tracking and it shows the current financial year month by month.
I find this to be fairly useless until you get to the third quarter of the financial year. Rather than use the scale of a financial year, this would be of much more help if it were a sliding scale showing the past 12 months.
For example, how pointless is this:
All it says is that a significant number of invoices were raised in February. BTW, this ledger uses a calendar year as their financial year.
