Resource usage vs. budget

Resource usage vs. budget

How the costs of the resources evolve (actual cost plus remaining cost) can be tracked using our custom view ‘Resource Usage vs Budget’. In this view, which you will only find in the template, you can see how your project’s resources are using the budget, per Budget Name (hours and materials):Resource usage vs. budget

Get the view and template

Note that this view shows how the use of resources have impact on the budget, for instance work, material and cost resources. There is one cost type that will not be included in this view, which is the fixed cost you have entered on the task level such as outsourced work. The highlight report will show you all the costs against the total budget, that is per main deliverable. (Note: The highlight report also comes with the template in our e-courses!)
