Agenda Ø Introduction ü What is the new feature in a Form C ü What will be achieved ü What will it look like Ø Business Logic ü New-style Form Cs ü Old-style Form Cs Ø Reporting ü Per Activity Type ü Per Cost Type ü Per Work Package Ø Questions
Introduction • In current Form Cs the user writes the amount of costs directly in the editable cells of the cost matrix.
• In new-style Form Cs the user will be able to click on a cell and add inside a pop-up window, one or more lines of details for: § Cost § Explanation § Work Package
• In this way, the user can: Ø Split the total costs in sub-costs defining different descriptions and work packages for each cost item. Ø Have reports grouped by these details (for example costs per work package).
New-style Form Cs • Upon clicking on a cell of an empty cost matrix, the follwoing pop-up will be shown
The title of the window presents the Activity Type and the Cost Type of the selected cell.
Edit cost details Ø “Cost” field is mandatory Ø Total cost is automatically calculated
Add new lines • Upon clicking on the “plus” icon a new empty row is added
Delete lines • Upon clicking on the “X” icon If only one row exists/remains then the “X” icon becomes disabled.
Copy the TOTAL cost back to the cell • Upon clicking the “Done” button the sum of the detail lines is copied back to the corresponding field of Form C
Old-style Form Cs • No changes. But, if users want to convert an old-style Form C to a new-style (with details) they can doubleclick on a cell. A confirmation pop up window will be shown
Actual Indirect Costs • No details will be provided. • The field will remain as it is, directly editable.
PDF Reporting per Form C • The Coordinator can view a printable summary of: Ø Details per Activity Ø Details per Cost Type Ø Details per Work Package • Can be accessed through: Ø A link in the Form C screen Ø A separate tab in FORCE Ø A link next to “Submission History”
