I'm new to FDM. We collect monthly financials from our entities accross the globe via FDM. Is "YTD" the preferred basis for collecting data vs. MTD? We currently collect MTD, however YTD seems easier. Any suggestions?
You may want to consider the target of the data load, if this is HFM and the target scenario is YTD then YTD may be better, it really would depend on the source system setup as well as the target system setup. Often business rules in Essbase may be built around how you are loading the data so a change in how the data is exported could be a significant rework.
