Example

As the project manager, you create a forecast for project 10001 that is based on the remaining forecast model. You have enabled automatic reduction.

You post real hours for the project from both July and August, but do not complete the project estimation process (in the Estimate form) for July until mid-way through the month of August.

As a result of this posting, the project hours from July are correctly included in the estimation. The project hours from August are not included in the estimation. This is also correct, because you did not select the Committed cost after estimate date check box.

However, whether the remaining budget is updated to reflect the hours posted for August depends on whether you selected the Actual cost after estimate date check box.

If the Actual cost after estimate date check box is selected, the hours for August are not deducted from the remaining budget. If the Actual cost after estimate date check box is not selected, the hours for August are deducted from the remaining forecast for project 10001.
