(BETA) Configure Budget View Columns


To create and configure budget view columns from the Units of Measure Beta and add them to a budget view.


The following source columns can be added to a budget view:

  • Budget Unit Cost
  • Budget UOM
  • Budget Unit Qty
  • Direct Costs Unit Qty
  • Prime Unit Qty

A new "Number" calculated column is also available. This column treats entries in the column as normal number amounts, rather than dollar amounts or percentage amounts. For example, if you create this column on your budget and then enter the number 10 as an entry in this column, you can use that number as a multiplier in a budget line calculation (e.g. $1,000 times 10 equals $10,000). For more information about creating calculated columns, see Set Up a New Budget View.

  2. Click Budget under Tool Settings in the side panel.
