Committed Monthly Recurring Revenue (CMRR) is a projection of MRR into the future based on expected or scheduled changes to a subscription. Use the Committed MRR Forecast to track how scheduled subscription events impact MRR and ARR. Use the forecast to:
- Forecast MRR and ARR taking into account any future subscription changes.
- See the total amount of a scheduled MRR movement type in a particular month (e.g., the amount of expansion in May 2022).
- Export a list of customers scheduled to churn and create a campaign in your email marketing or CRM software to try and win them back.

Before you begin
- Committed rows use scheduled subscription events to calculate MRR. Subscription events are currently supported for Recurly, Stripe, and custom data sources.
- For Recurly, New Business and Reactivation are not reported in the forecast as Recurly does not support the Start (Scheduled) subscription event type.
Reading a Committed MRR Forecast
Access the Committed MRR Forecast by navigating to Reports > Forecasts > CMRR Forecast.
This forecast is a snapshot of current and committed MRR. As scheduled subscription events become MRR movements, they are added to the Current MRR.
Each column is a month. The first month shows the remainder of the current month.
ChartMogul breaks down Committed MRR into five standard MRR movement types:
Total Committed MRR — the total value of new revenue resulting from scheduled subscription events in the month.
Total Committed MRR (Cumulative) — a running total of Total Committed MRR showing month-over-month new revenue growth resulting from scheduled subscription events.
Current MRR — current monthly recurring revenue, calculated using invoice data. Same as MRR.
Forecasted MRR (Cumulative) — a running total of projected monthly recurring revenue (MRR) in that month and year. (The sum of Total Committed MRR (Cumulative) and Current MRR)
Total Committed ARR (Cumulative) — the sum of Total Committed MRR (Cumulative) x 12
Current ARR — current annual run rate, calculated using invoice data. Same as ARR.
Forecasted ARR (Cumulative) — a running total of projected annual run rate in that month and year. (The sum of Total Committed ARR (Cumulative) and Current ARR)
