Monitor Your Project Budget in Jira

Are you managing your projects in Jira and want to control their expenses?

HawkBudget could be the application for you, and its 30-day trial is free.

Thanks to HawkBudget you can enter a budget target for your project and keep costs related to hours worked and expenses under control.

Let’s start!

If you’ve never downloaded an app in Jira, just follow these simple steps: in the top navigation bar click on “Apps” and then on “Find new apps”.

Search for HawkBudget and click on its logo.

Now choose to try it for free for 30 days.

Once the installation has finished, go to your project settings and activate “Track Budget”.

You can choose a total cost for the project by entering it in the “Cost (Optional)” field and define an hourly cost that will allow you to count the time spent.

As an alternative to a total budget you can define a cost for each epic by clicking on “Define Epic costs”.

Okay, now you have everything ready.

When you enter the hours worked on a phase of the project, these will be counted as “WorkCost” for each Epic.

If you need to enter additional expenses you can do so by clicking on HawkBudget and entering them with “New expense”.

Finally, you can keep your project budget under control at any time by clicking on “View Report”. Here you can check if a phase of your project is costing more than expected, or if you’ve managed to save a little compared to what you set out to do.

For several years I have been managing processes with trouble ticket systems. After having worked with some of those, EriZone impressed me for its features and flexibility, so I moved with my wife from Piedmont to South Tyrol to become part of the Würth Phoenix System Integration team as EriZone Consultant. I spend my free time travelling, exploring my new neighborhood, or if I have to stay at home I binge-watch tv series.
