Cost Variance


Cost Variance custom field helps estimate if you are within your budget for a task or project. Cost Variance shows the difference between the total actual Cost of a task or project (Actual Cost + Remaining Cost) and Baseline Cost, i.e. total estimated budgeted cost for a task or project.

VIP Task Manager Professional automatically calculates Cost Variance by the following formula:

Cost Variance = Cost - Baseline Cost

If the custom field shows the value with negative format, you are under your budget.

If the custom field shows the value with positive format, you are over your budget.
