You can specify any number of benefit lines for each forecast, indicating the name and type. If a required type does not exist, click to create it.

For each benefit, you can specify:

      a Deliverable to which it is linked. This is particularly relevant for an achievement benefit type where the deliverable may indicate the expected benefit has been achieved.

      a Start Date for the benefit. This is automatically set to the date of any linked deliverable; otherwise, you can indicate when the benefit is expected to start.

      the amounts of expected financial benefits or the numbers for unit benefits for indicated weeks or months. No entry is possible for achievement benefits although a symbol ( ) will appear against the period when the benefit is expected.

You can record actual financial and unit benefits through the Benefit Actuals screen.
