Cinodes helps you to work with extensions easily. To work with Extensions this way, the extensions will be included in the Utilization forecast. There are different ways of working with extensions in Cinode depending on how you use the module, and therefore we offer you three ways of doing the extension;
- Extend the role within the same project. You create a new role with a new start- and end date and can change the extent and price.
The calculated value of the new role (price*extent) will be added to the total calculated value for that project. You will not have a new deal date for the project (time for status won). Chose this alternative if you do not take order values for the extension in consideration and do not work with extensions as separate deals.
- Extend the role to another project (already created). You create a new role in a previously created project.
The calculated value for this role will be added to the total calculated value for the project selected. The deal date will follow the chosen project. Chose this alternative if you separate extensions from the initial deal and already works with the extension as a project within a pipe.
- Extend the role to a new project.
The calculated value for the new role will be added to the new project. The new project will have its deal date (the project status sets default as Open with today's date). If you work with extensions as a separate deal and want an independent deal value and deal date, and is not already working with the project within a pipe, this is the alternative for you.
How to extend a role
View the short video clip below how to work with the extension of a role:
Go to the project and the role tab. Select to view the role in the card- or list view.
By the three dot icon, select the Extend function.
Select how you would like to extend the role by selecting from the three alternatives.
You will get into the widget for creating a new role which will differ depending on the choice made.
This example will focus on how to extend the role to a new project.
Create a new project by filling in the New project widget. Project details inherit from the previous project. The won date will be the same as today's date.
Change wanted fields and click save.
For the role, set an end date and update if necessary price and extent. Click save.
