Are there any OOTB portlets or reports that displays Cost Plans in Annual buckets?
“Planned Cost” attribute should be showing the aggregated cost from your Plan of Record – can be seen on Project Properties\Main\Budget – subpage.
The OTB Project Storyboard report shows the contents of this field. However, in Jaspersoft reports, the fields contents are slice based – this means that if you run really long duration projects (which we do) and run out of the box default slice settings, then you may find a difference between “Planned Cost” attribute and Jaspersoft reported “Planned Cost” – as I have found.
The Jaspersoft “Project and Cost Effort” report displays “Planned Cost” as BAC – again, using DWH which is timeslice based, its reporting a different value than the attribute for the project I’m looking at. At least the two reports agree with each other!
Time to get with our team to decide how far back in time we need to reset our timeslices for…..before we start distributing Japsersoft to our users.
What we are looking for is an OOTB report that displays project cost in annual buckets. So if my project goes from 2016-2019, I can view 4 cost buckets for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.
You could configure your Project List page and setup slices by Year. And you will have what you wished for.
Which Slice are you talking about. we already have the YEARLYRESOURCECURVE setup for yearly.
Can you give more information on it.
No need to setup. In your Project List Page, under Configuration drop-down, probably by default would be Month, you need to change that to year.
I meant Time-Scale Value option.
There is no option on the Project List page to display Panned Cost or Budgeted Cost in a time-scale. I can display a time scale on the Financial Plans page of a project, but I don't understand how you can display this time-scaled cost plan on the Project List page. There does not seem to be an option to display the cost plan amount in a time-scaled way on the Project List page.
This is perfect and solves our problem. I did not know that you can create a time-scaled attribute. I thought you only had the time scaled attributes provided by CA. Thanks again!
Welcome John! Glad I could help.
Thanks Dharmesh, it works perfectly and solves our problem.
That's good. At last, I could solve your problem :-)
