Lesson 7.6. Entering Task Fixed Costs
Figure 7-7. The project in Gantt Chart view with the Cost table.
Fixed costs are different from rate-based or per use costs. Fixed costs don't change if the duration or amount of work needed to complete a task changes. In this lesson, we'll assign a fixed cost to a task.
Tip: If you want to enter a fixed cost for the entire project, select Tools View tab. In the "Outline options" section, click the Show project summary task checkbox, and then click OK. In the Task Name field, select the project summary task. In the Fixed Cost field, type a cost for the project.
