Creating Budget and Sub-budgets

Creating budgets and sub-budgets in Mastt is a crucial step in effectively managing project finances. By creating budgets and sub-budgets, you gain better control over project costs and can accurately monitor whether the project is staying within the allocated budget. To create budget and sub-budget, follow these steps.


Step 1: Find the Cost Module in the Hamburger Menu (image-png-Mar-20-2024-02-47-22-0877-AM). Then, on the Overall page, either hover over + Add and choose + Add Budget, or click on the Three Dots Menu (...) next to a Project and select Add and Edit Budgets.

Tip: You can also add a budget using the Budgets Register Page.


Step 2: Enter the Budget Title, Amount, and Status in the Add and Edit Budget form. Click Save to apply your changes. You can now add sub-budgets! 

Step 3: To create sub-budgets, simply access the Three Dots Menu (icon-2) located next to the budget you wish to add sub-budgets to. Select Add and Edit Sub Budgets. From there, follow the same process as creating a budget.

Step 4: In the Add and Edit Budgets form, enter the Budget Title, Amount, and Status for the sub-budget you are creating. To finalize your changes, simply click on the Save button.

Tip: You can add more budgets and sub-budgets as needed by clicking + Add Budget. After adding, you can also drag and rearrange the Budgets.

You can add sub-budget amounts that total more than the parent budget, but you will be alerted that you have over allocated the Budget. The Unallocated Budget row at the bottom is there as a guide to show you how much you have left to allocate, and will go into negative if you have over allocated the budget.
