Cause

Case 1 :

This Revenue by Team Member Report (PROCPIU03_Q0001) shows only those Projects which are linked to Sales Orders that are Released.

Case 2 :

The Revenue by Team Member Report ( PROCPIU03_Q0001)  does not show the expenses which are linked to Fixed Price Items because it is not possible to determine the revenue per employee for a fixed price appropriately it will  only show data related to project tasks which are linked to Sales order items which are of type Time and Material hence it is displaying the key figure "Net Value - Invoiced Time and Expenses - 0.00" and the characteristic "Team Member" - unassigned (#).

Revenue by Team Member is to be able to check estimated revenue per team member based on the expenses , time recordings, expense reports incurred or actuals by the team member. We can determine the revenue based on the quantity in case of time recordings and amounts in case of expense reports. This is possible for time and materials items, because the basis for time and material items is the actuals. However, for fixed price items  we have no appropriate mechanism to determine the estimated revenue per team member, because we do not associate actuals with fixed price items and without actuals, it is not possible to determine estimated revenue.

For fixed price items it is not possible for us to calculate the estimated Revenue per team member. Hence it is not possible for us to show the Expenses which might have been linked to Fixed Price Items, since you are going to invoices a fixed price and not the Incurred or Actuals.

Resolution

System is working fine as this is designed behavior. This is the current functionality in the report Revenue by Team Member Report (PROCPIU03_Q0001).
