You can create multiple “what if” scenarios for any calculator in FreshPlan.

 

Let’s use the Pay Yourself First calculator as an example.

  1. Click Pay Yourself First under Financial Planning in the CALCULATE menu to open the calculator.

  1. Click Scenario. We will create a new scenario that changes the Pay yourself percent 1 and Pay yourself percent 2 values.

  1. Click Copy. This will create a copy of the existing Base Scenario that uses 10% and 5% for the Pay Yourself First values.

  1. Click Edit to rename Base Scenario (Copy).

  1. Type in the new name.
  2. Click Save.

  1. Click Open to open the new scenario.

  1. Change the Pay yourself percent 1 value to 12.50% and the Pay yourself percent 2 value to 7.50%.
  2. Click Save.
