    Hello Chinedu,

    I guess you are using services of item type "fixed-price (project)", right?

    If so, there are various options (all to be executed in WOC Cost & Revenue, Sales Document Items):

    1) Assign accrual method "Cost-to-Cost Proect POC". This allows either to track the progress based on time / expenses posted to the project (assuming this is linear throughout the months) or you can manually add a schedule by assigning either a manual POC.


    2) Assign accrual method "Based on manual amounts", then enter a schedule on revenue and costs to be realized in "Edit Manual Revenue Recognition Data" > "Recognized Costs and Revenues".

    Best regards,
