Managing the time and costs you’ve budgeted for and recorded against a Project is easier than ever.
By allocating and adding time to a Project, you can set goals for your team and give them targets to meet. It can also be an important way to manage the staffing costs associated with different Projects and seeing when this budgeted time has been overrun.
The control for how time is recorded and whether it is included in these calculations is done at the Activity level. At this same stage, your users can record their expenses. These are then calculated against the total budget of the Project.
Using custom views will give you an overview of your current Projects and how they are running compared to the budgets you have set out.
All of the fields used in this Tuesday Tip are standard fields, although you can, of course, set restrictions around which of your users are able to see them.
