Assign costs to cost centers to see the cost of hours spent on those cost centers. This information is then used calculating costs for a story. For example, you can calculate each story cost based on the development efforts.

Note: For information on how to create cost centers, see the Create Cost Centers topic.

To assign cost to 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.
  2. On the left side of the page, select Cost Centers in the Settings section.
  3. Select the name of the cost center you want to assign a cost to. A Details panel will display. 
  4. In the Hourly rate ($) field, type an hourly rate for the cost center, and then click Save.
