Valuation with compensation rate functionality does not work for planing costs in projects?

Hi,

working with projects, we activated in the Set of Books the option "Valuation with compensation rate" in order to use the values maintained in the work center of Compensation to valuate the time confirmations. This functionality works correctly when the consultants update their time-sheets. However, when you are planning the work in a project, that value is not used to calculate the planned costs.

First I used an employee for which a resource had been maintained with a different rate than in Compensation, and the system is taking the resource rate for the planned costs and the compensation rate for the actual cost (time confirmations). Then I tried an employee without a resource assigned, and the project was unable to find any rate to calculate the planned costs.

The Valuation with compensation rate functionality looked very helpful so we could save to maintain the resources rates (one per consultant), but if anyway you have to maintain the resources rates in order to have planned costs,

    Hi Fernando,

    your observation is right. "Valuation with compensation rate" only effects actual and not planned costs.

    This was originally introduced due to some legal requirements. It was not deemed necessary / useful to offer this for planned costs as well.

    I would like to point you to our platform for improvement requests: https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/886.
    I do expect some discussion whether or not whether people with access to the project management UI should see a figure that closely related to someone's salary. Still, by all means, do go for it.

    Best regards
