Top recurring revenue initiatives

As a workstream sponsor, you need to be able to easily identify the largest impact initiatives in your workstream. Wave lets you see this information in real time with quick access to important details, like who are the initiative owners and what is the weekly status. Follow the steps below to create a visualization that helps you identify your top recurring revenue initiatives and how they are progressing, as illustrated in the image. 

How to use 

  • In a list ordered by highest recurring benefits, you will see your initiatives that have the highest recurring revenues and details such as stage, weekly status, and initiative owner
  • Double click initiatives to see details on the milestones tab and the weekly status tab 
  • Don't see the column showing net recurring benefits? You may need to change the column order or show the column, if it is hidden.



Step-by-step Instructions

One best practice is to view and update this data weekly. You will want to save your workbook view for future reference. You can also share your saved workbook with others.
