Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Project Planning and Control - Version 12.2.4 and later

Goal

Users have a requirement to enter budgets / forecasts with different amounts by periods.
This must be possible to enter user specific values by GL/PA periods.

Example for project Impl1_2016:
Task 1: CRP1
Task2: CRP2
Task3: CRP3
Budget for task 1 CRP1 is:
Jan-16: 1 M$
Feb-16: 1.5M$
Mar-16: 1.6M$

This functionality is working perfectly in Project Management Web Adi, but users are not able to make it fly in MSP.

Questions:
1- Is it possible to enter periodic budgets in MSP with user entered values for each GL/PA periods?
2- If yes, how to achieve it?
2.a- How to download GL or PA calendar in MSP?

Already suggested workarounds with spreading curves: both rejected by business users.
Even tried to suggest adding the period to the WBS (example adding a sub level to task 1.CRP1 (1.1 CRP1-JAN, 1.2 CRP1-FEB, 1.3 CRP1-MAR): also rejected.
