Spreadsheet templates allow you to quickly create spreadsheets without starting from scratch.

Several pre-built templates are available when creating a new spreadsheet from the Documents app, such as:

You can also save any spreadsheet as a template and manage and edit existing templates.

Default templates

Accounting: budget reports

Budget reports compare a company’s actual spending with its budget over a defined period. Two templates are available: one uses quarterly intervals (Budget Report (Quarterly)), while the other uses monthly intervals (Budget Report (Monthly)).

The cells under the Actuals column are automatically filled in with the amount of money made and spent over the corresponding period (month or quarter). The data is taken from posted journal items under income and expense accounts.


Journal items under the Other Income account type are not considered when collecting data.

To analyze your budget’s performance, fill the cells under the Budget column with how much money you expect to make (Income rows) and spend (Expenses rows) over the related period and per account. Then, the performance (Perf.) column compares Actuals data to their corresponding budget, expressed as a percentage.

Lastly, the Net Profit row represents the total Income minus the total Expenses for the Actuals and Budget columns.

CRM: pipeline revenue reports

Two pipeline revenue reports are available. The Pipeline Revenue Report (Monthly) is dedicated to one-time revenue (NRR), while the MRR/NRR Pipeline Revenue Report (Monthly) covers recurring and non-recurring revenue (MRR).


Enable Recurring Revenues by going to CRM ‣ Configuration ‣ Settings.

The cells under the Actuals column are automatically filled in with the amount of monthly revenue from won opportunities.

To compute the revenue performance, fill in the monthly revenue targets.

  • For the Revenue by Team sheet, fill in the cells under the Target columns for each sales team.

  • For the Revenue by Salesperson sheet, open the Targets sheet and fill in the cells next to each salesperson. Use the Monthly Factor table below to adapt the main targets depending on the month of the year.

Then, the performance (Perf.) column compares Actuals data to their related budget, expressed as a percentage.

Lastly, the Forecasted column gathers the monthly revenue of leads multiplied by their Probability percentage.


For actuals and forecasts:

  • The Expected Closing date found on leads is used to assign them to a month.

  • The recurring monthly revenue is used even if the recurring plan’s number of months is set to a different value than 1 month. For example, a yearly plan’s revenue is divided by 12 months.

Sales: sales commission

This report presents the monthly commission earned or due to each salesperson.

The Rate column is pre-filled with the percentage rate from the Rates tab, which can be customized for each product category according to the company’s policy. Adjusting the rate for a specific product category automatically updates the commission amount for that category.

The Invoiced column shows the total amount of untaxed invoices grouped by salesperson and month.

Lastly, the Comm. column is computed by multiplying the invoiced amount with the rate percentage.
