Create a Missing Budget Line Item


To add new line items to the budget that are associated with financial line items with a cost code/category combination that's currently not represented in the budget. 


During the lifecycle of a project, financial line items may introduce line items that were not included in the original budget, often times by mistake. 

The warning banner gives users a chance to review financial line items that have a non-budgeted cost code and/or category prior to adding them to the budget in the event the cost code and/or category was mistakenly selected.
