And for the end, few tips!

  1. The custom field and the cost Table should be make available for all projects! To get that you should use organizer!
  2. If the Baseline is not set, you will get an #ERROR in this Custom field
  3. If you are using Baseline1, Baseline2, etc, you should make another Custom field(s) or use IIF function!

I hope this is helpful to my friend!

Regards!

    Very helpful. Thansk – One quick question – Does Project Server 2013 allow entering different resource cost for differnt projects and in different currencies? Example, on project1 resource1 is $300/hr and project 2 his cost is $500/hr and project3 his cost is Euro 200/hr. How do I set this up in enterprise respurce pool?

      Yes you can! For each project you can establish different currencie, and you can apply multiple tables for costs! I will write about it in some of my next Posts!
