As-of dates are a core concept in most Molecule reporting. They represent a reporting date -- the date that a specific report is about. As-of dates are in:
- Valuations (and Settlements) Reporting
- YTD Reporting
- Inventory Reporting
- Asset Reporting
- Marks & Volatilities
Other systems may refer to this date as reporting date or effective date. Reporting rows for an as-of date may be modified at any time.
Reports in Molecule may show as-of date in a column labeled
As Of, or
Screens in Molecule where as-of dates are relevant (i.e., reporting screens, market data screens) show an as-of date picker on the top right. It looks like this:
Clicking an as-of date picker shows a calendar where you can choose the date for which you'd like to see the on-screen data.
Immutable (Fixed) Reporting Dates
As-of dates are not always the way a report looked on a specific date in the past. In practice, they generally are. However, for an auditable guarantee of how a particular report looked in the past, you'll want to use our Valuations snapshot feature.
Immutable dates are not currently available for Inventory or Assets.
