Cost Rate is not changing for the Department value in Financial summary

Hi Team,

We need some information regarding the cost factors in PPM.

Actaully we have two departments like Departmment A and Department B with below effective rates from Jan 1, 2017.


Departmment A - Rate 20$
Departmment B - Rate 30$

Now we have assigned Resource1 to Department A for Jan Month FTE of 160 hours. so the total cost is 3200$ which is showing correctly in Resource Forecast under cost section in Project.
But when we changed the Department A to Department B for the same Resource1 then the total cost should be 4800$ for the Same month of JAN, but it is still showing 3200$ in Resource Forecast.

Please let us know when it will be reflect in the Cost section of financial summary if we update the department for the same resource and which scheduler it will be part of it.

Regards,
Praveen.

Hello Praveen

To roll up the cost, there should be one service which needs to be run. I do not remember the service name but you can check in available services.

Hope it helps.

Re: Cost Rate is not changing for the Department value in Financial summary

since you have made changes in resource , it might be case that financial rollup has not occured for that project.

PLease make some changes in forecast hours of that resource or assign a new resource and then try.

also , please try after check and uncheck the  calculate forecast labor cost option under project settings.

Hi,

We have already implemented that plan, it was worked perfectly. But as per the functionality it has to work based on the change in the department for the same resource correct?.
