"When creating Work Breakdown Structures, it is important for my customer to be able to

a) assign costs to different activities (= topics) and be able to modify them
b) 'roll up' costs from topics to their parent topics, so that whenever changes are made further down the structure, the top always reflects this
c) include the following in topics: costs, content and time
d) display minimum, median and maximum costs
"

"I second this request!

similar to the activity duration we would can specify an income or outcome (money) per activity and/or time unit. The roll up feature would calculate the results for the parents" [from mentalwaves]

"This basically includes the desired functionality from the suggestion ""WBS-Customer Request"" ( http://mindjet.uservoice.com/forums/1... ).

There should be a distinction between the duration of a task and the calendar time it requires for completion as explained in the above mentioned suggestion. In addition the roll up functionality would also cover cost calculation as presented in this suggestion." [from Tero]
