    Gnucash currently provides Experimental Balance and Income Statement (= Profit & Loss) reports that support displaying multiple columns.

    They are still experimental because of some glitches with price calculations case of multi-currency or stock market scenarios. If you don’t have those, the experimental reports probably will give you what you need.

    It is common for businesses to present multiperiod reports to shareholders to demonstrate the financial performance of the corporation over time. Currently, to have this functionality, the user would either design his own report (which would require great effort and programming knowledge beyond the average user) or would have to use a multicolumn report, which would require setting each individual report's options separately and would repeat much of the same information (such as the account tree). I would propose having a multiperiod balance sheet and income statement that would allow users to set custom periods or use predefined periods (such as monthly, quarterly, annually) and a start/end date. This would be more effecient and give more information to the financial officers without requiring the use of other software (spreadsheets, etc.) or knowledge of programming.
