2896973 - The selection of expenses in the release billing proposal is unclear.

Symptom

In the details screen of app "release billing proposal", some unexpected time and expenses items are proposed.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In a customer project, there is no Expense type (e.g. Accommodation) maintained under 'Expenses' section in a work package.
  2. Post journal entries for Accommodation against the work package.
  3. Open "release billing proposal" app and go to the details screen.
  4. Accommodation is proposed even if it was not maintained in the work package.

Cause

This is an expected behaviour.
The actual cost postings done on any expense type but assigned to work package belonging to customer project is considered for billing.
This is because the planned expenses in customer project is meant purely for planning purposes.
In app Release Billing Proposal, we consider actuals which are posted against the work package.
Hence all the actuals posted will be shown in release billing proposal app.

Resolution

In the details screen of  'release billing proposal' app, 'write-off' button can be utilized to write off the items which are not needed.
