To plan human resource costs

Human resources are the salary expenses you plan for the folio to incur at one point or another. The planned costs page shows the calculated cost for each Human resource and Human resource group (title). The cost displayed on group title rows is simply the sum of the costs of the Human resources in that group. You can collapse or expand a group of Human resources by clicking the triangle icon (

) next to a Human resource title.
