How to disable the Cost Health on Project

Hi,
We are on PPM 7.5.
We'd like to turn off the out of the box RYG indicator for Cost Health for our projects.
To do so, we have updated the Project Type settings as follows -
1. Cost and Earned Value Health - unchecked all options
2. Project Health - nothing for Cost Health (blank)

We also do allow for Capitalized costs.
But we still notice that the Cost Health starts to show for the Project once we enter in Actuals against the budget on the Budget.

Does anyone know how to permanently disable the out of the box Cost Health function?

Hi Abdullah,

Could you please explain what do you mean "Cost Health starts to show" ?

If you want to say "Cost Health square start to show", yes we have the same configuration and when we enter any budget value to Budget, PPM show Cost Health square but there is no any signal(small green/yellow/red square)

Re: How to disable the Cost Health on Project

Celil,

What we are trying to achieve is to turn off the out of the box Cost Health on projects. So, on the Project Overview page, we expect to see a Schedule Health, Issue Health, but for Cost Health it should be blank.
I think we have now achieved this through the Project Type Settings. So now, even if our Project has a budget (with plan and actuals) - it does not display a Red/Yellow/Green icon in the health section.

We wanted to do this because we have created our own custom Cost Health calcuations on the Project form.

Re: How to disable the Cost Health on Project

Hi Abdullah,

 

We have the same requirement to disable the cost health indicator in Project as its been manually selected by Managers in Projects. I have changed the "cost and earned value health" and "Project Health" settings for both the Project and the Project type. Even then green colour is being displayed for cost health.

Can you please advice how did you disable it in PPM??

 

We have to disable the cost health colour that is being displayed and should display the manually selected cost health value.

 

Appreciate your help!

 

Thanks & Regards,

Divya
