How to use CAT analyses for defining payables/receivables

The financial information on a project can be provided in two ways — either manually by entering the volume or using the CAT analysis generated by a CAT tool.

The CAT analysis can be added to the project at two different levels: in the 'Files' card or directly in the Receivables or Payables tabs in the 'Finance' card.

Adding the CAT analysis on the Receivables and Payables tabs

Go to the 'Finance' card and click on the Receivables tab. The following view will be displayed:

Also, the total amount the Client will be charged for the Project will be calculated based on the CAT analysis and the rate defined in the Client Profile.

To add a Payable based on the CAT analysis, go to the Payables tab on the Finance card and click on the Add CAT Payables button. It is possible to upload a new CAT analysis or import the CAT analysis already uploaded on the 'Receivables' tab by clicking on the Import All from Receivable button.
