View actual project costs

When you are using Project Portfolio Suite with Financials, you can view actual project costs on cost plans and projects.

Before you begin

Role required: it_project_manager

About this task

View actual costs in these places:
  • Project cost plan breakdowns show actual costs for each fiscal period.
  • Project cost breakdowns show actual costs for operating and capital expenses for each fiscal period. View project cost breakdowns if you do not specify a cost plan when you create expense lines.
    Note: An expense line has to be processed to be considered for actual cost. The actual cost is recorded against the creation date of the expense line, not the processed date. The expense lines are created only for approved time cards.

Actual costs for projects also roll up to portfolios in the same way.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Project > Projects > All.
  2. Open the project for which you want to view the actual costs.
  3. Click the Cost Plans or Cost Breakdown related list.
