Custom Project cost fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Project Server users,

    I have created a custom project cost field, representing the cost of a project for a particular sector, and entered a random value of 5000$.
    But when I open actual costs, or costs or budget field for that project it is always showing 0$.

    My question is, where are these custom project cost fields shown or summed up?

    With best regards,

  • Hi Petar,

    Project custom field, such as cost or duration will NOT be rolled up in the project. This would be too hazardous since Project would need to know on which task/resource/date. So custom field values are just data entered for information which you can use for grouping, filtering in PWA, or add to custom reports.

    Hope this helps,
