    Add non-employee department
    Other options rather than adding non-employee department

    We were told that in order to define non-labor cost (for equipment or tools) we need to define their "department", 

    but as agreed with the HCM team not to create non-employee departments,

    So is there any other way else we can do so we can capture the cost of the tools without defining a non-department for them?

      Yasmin.  PPM Cloud relies heavily on Organizations to specify the ownership of Projects/Tasks, Expenditures, and Nonlabor Resources.  These Organizations do not need to be classified as Departments, but do need to be classified as Project/Task Owning and/or Expenditure Owning, and including in a hierarchy that is associated to each Projects Business Unit.


      Documentation specific to the configuration of Nonlabor Resources is located here.

      Hi Yas,

      Maybe with a DFF but only for information purposes, maybe after from OTBI you can query this information and can classify this non-workers with filter for the previous typed info on the DFF.
