Working with release request financial information - Rolling up costs

Risk, time, and costs (actual and budget) from activities and change requests that are related to the release manifest are rolled up on the Financials tab.

  • For activities, only the time spent, and the actual and budget costs, are rolled up to the release.
  • For change requests, in addition to time spent and costs, the highest Risk Level is also rolled up to the release.

To roll up costs

  1. Open the release request.
  2. Perform one of the following actions:

    When using the Best Practice view

    When using the Classic view

    Click Links > Financials.

    Based on the changes and activities displayed in the release manifest, the Release Costs table shows the costs associated with the release, and rolled-up costs from the related activities or change requests.
