As part of our Projects module overhaul, we set out to give you a true insights reporting dashboard - one that you could easily glance at for an overview of how your project was tracking. We also wanted to give you the flexibility to see your resource usage in a way that made sense for your business, which meant adjusting some of the incorrect assumptions we made around materials, expenses, and budgets. What do we mean by this? More specifically, lots of you let us know that you were actually using the expenses module for key parts of your project delivery, like contracting a chunk of work out to another company, and wanted to track that as a part of your consumed budget, rather than using the expenses module for more menial things like tracking taxi fare on your way to a client meeting.
With the new Insights tab, you’ll find forecasted value against earned value for any project you’re working on, along with how your current profitability is tracking against forecasted profitability. We’ve also got a financials section underneath that goes into the details of your project’s budget, value, costs, profit, and what you’ve already invoiced for.
These are all pit against the:
All-in-all, giving you an overall view of budget, value, and even profit.
