Edit Cost to CompleteLast updated on 03/22/2022
Cost to Complete is a field in the Project Summary section of the project page that calculates the default cost to complete a project by deducting actual expenses from budgeted expenses. You can also update the value manually if you have additional costs that are not budgeted.
Things to know
Cost to Complete is included in the revenue recognition calculation in the Work in Progress (WIP) report to calculate the percentage of completion.
If you anticipate unaccounted budget overruns, update the Cost to Complete manually to have an accurate percentage of completion calculation in the WIP report. This can also be applicable for cases when you anticipate the remaining cost to complete the project will be less than what you had originally budgeted for.

To update value manually to complete the project:
Search for the project you want to edit the cost for and click it to open it.

Edit Cost to Complete opens.
Select Custom Value.

When you’re done, click Save.
After updating the cost, in the Cost to Complete field you can see both the updated and default values.
Note: You can go back and change the cost value back to the default anytime.
