I like the program in principle.

Having said that I have had several problems:

1- many crashes while entering data

2- managed to erase the predefined reports by mistake

and most importantly

3- there are no reports regarding costs and expenses.

This makes this app almost trivial in the work place.

The number one question from stakeholders is:

What is the cost? 

How much is this project going to cost us?

Can we afford this project?

Resources do not have a record field for cost per hour.

This needs to be aggregated for each portion of a project.

The cost for all the portions of a project need to be added.

A report page is needed showing costs.

1- total costs per resource
2- costs per portion of a project
3- costs for the whole project

Costs, time, and resources provide a glimpse of what level of involvement will be needed in the future for a project.

However, being able to see the resources needed with only some data for their time and the time length of a project is insufficient information to commit to the basic question:

Do we proceed with this project or do we scratch?

What do you think?
