    Add Plain cost amount of Labor to Project Plan

    Hi all,

    Within the Project Costing section in PPM, we would like to add Labor Resource to the Project Planning in a 'plain' raw cost amount, instead of specifying the quantity of hours (for which a rate schedule should be setup again). Please see also the screenshot attached. Reason for this requirement is that we are going to incur labor hours directly in the PA module, and when not adding to the project planning (which will lead to the first version of the budget), the labor hours that will be written are being incurred as unplanned costs (which has its consequences again on the Estimate at Completion amount). We'd like to have it being written on the project as planned cost.

    Also, we'd like to add this Labor amount to the project level, instead of adding it to the task level.

    Does anyone has an idea on this?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,
