Output transactions table

On the input transactions table portfolio you will be able to view a list of your output transactions, which can be sorted or filtered at the top of each column. 

Due to the nature of output transactions, you cannot create, edit or delete them. However, you can view the transaction type and gain / loss by clicking the appropriate text and icons.

Commands

Every time you make a request to change a portfolio in LUSID, the system captures your request as a command. Each API request maps to a single command.

The commands pane allows you to audit when a particular change happened, who requested it, and what other data may have changed as part of the same request.

Bi-temporal capabilities

In addition, with LUSID's bi-temporal capabilities, you can view the state of your transactions at any given effectiveAt or asAt date by using the date selector in the top right corner of the holdings dashboard.
