You can use cost centers to track costs associated with time by team, disciplines, regions, products, or other corporate needs. Only users with the appropriate permissions can create cost centers.

To create a cost center:

  1. If you’re using the new navigation, select the Settings gear Gear in the top navigation bar. If you’re using the old navigation, select Administration in the left Nav menu.
    On the left side of the page, select Cost Centers in the Setup section.
  2. On the toolbar (top-right of the page), click the Add Cost Center button.
  3. In the corresponding boxes, type a name, an identifier, and a description of the cost center.
  4. Select the owner and the region, and then click Save & Close.

After creating a cost center, you can then assign a cost to it on the report baseline page.
