Last updated on APRIL 21, 2023

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version 17.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When negative values (units or costs) are entered against a resource the negative values do not show up in P6 Web. Positive values are fine but negative do not appear.
If you look at the same data in P6 Pro, you can see both positive and negative values.
If you were to add negative values to the negative values activity in P6 Web, save, refresh, the negative value do not appear, but if you look in P6 Pro you will see them.
Totals show correctly in both clients.
We have tested this on Internet Explorer 11 and on Chrome and also observed the same issue.

Negative values should show in the spread.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log into P6 Pro client.
  2. Create a project.
  3. Create 1 activity called "Positive Values".
  4. Create 1 activity called "Negative Values".
  5. Assign a resource to each activity.
  6. Go to the resource assignments view.
  7. Show the Planned Units and Planned Costs fields.
  8. In the Positive Values activity enter in the units (e.g. 50).
  9. In the Negative Values activity enter in the units (e.g. -100).
  10. Commit the changes.
  11. Refresh
  12. The data is showing correctly in P6 Pro.
  13. Log into the P6 Web client.
  14. Go to the Resource tab, Assignments view.
  15. Look up the same project, activities and resource as steps 2-5.
  16. Show the Planned Units and Planned Costs fields.
  17. Notice that the planned units against the Positive Values activity are displayed.
  18. Notice that the planned units against the Negatives Values activity are NOT displayed.

The issue has the following business impact:
