Fusion PPM Budget/Forecast entry differs to that in E-Business

When opting to enter a Project Budget or Forecast by period and in Excel, the layout is much different to of E-Business.

In E-Business, periodic entry is available with the Periods as column Headings. In E-Business R12, users can download Periodic Project Budget/Forecast into Excel and have the Periods as column Headings.

In Fusion we don't see the Project Periods as columns but as an item that is selected in each row of the budget/forecast for upload - this is far less user friendly and will be a significant change for our E-Business users moving to Fusion Cloud. Additionally, the FBDI templates for Budget and Forecast upload are the same row based period entry format.

Taking a relatively simple example Project with only 10 Tasks, and planning being done at an Expenditure Category level. Say there are 10 categories to be budgeted for on each task-this in itself requires 100 (10x10) rows of budget/forecast data to be put into the Excel worksheet / FBDI. We then have to multiply this number by the number of individual periods that each Period-Resource (Exp cat) combination needs an amount for so on a Project spanning 3 years, that could be 36 periods per Task-Resource combination so 3600 rows of Excel data for a relatively simple structured project budget.
