Variance allows you to build reports which perform calculations leading to insights into the deviations between actual and forecasted behavior.

You can add Variance and Variance % columns to reports, to help stakeholders analyze key values and help make informed decisions.

Some common use cases for variance include: quarterly revenue or cost comparisons, cost of labor variance, overhead spending variance, and selling price variance. However, there are many other scenarios that are unique to each business.

To include variance in a report, a page builder can configure a table card to include Variance (numerical) and Variance % (percentage) columns, as well as customizing their calculation, their cells and their content's formatting.
