Good Day.
I think it's impossible by standard functionality. Impact? Don't know.

If you need any classification i recomend use budget line user data. We use this for calculating money to bying hardware for type of HW of SW i.e.
Good Luck

You can add additional items to the labor and non-labor lists without any impact. This is done by editing the appropriate validation. Do a search for %labor% and you will find them.

The name of the validation you need to modify is CST - Budget Line Type, this is a seeded validation so if you will be adding or removing values, you have to do it in the backend.

If I put more type value from backend ,apart from two labor/non labor we have. Then how to have category values for new TYPE Value , as we have ootb validation for labor and non labor?? .Also what is the impact on the overall budgeting.

CST - Budget Labor Category
and CST - Budget Non-Labor Category


thanks!!

yes it is freeze and can only be updated in the backend. Regarding the impact, im not really sure what are the other areas that might get affected.
