Add Expenses to Task - Not just to the project
Idea shared by Greg B - October 19, 2015 at 10:52 AM
To balance client schedules against profitability, we outsource tasks only when we have to.  
Most of of our projects are multi-phase project (for example a technical drawing that develops as the project develops).
We may have outsourced expenses in the first phase, work entirely in house on the second phase, and maybe a combination of outsource and in house on the third phase.
To project costs and profitability, it would be helpful if we could add expenses to a task (just like time to a task).

Relevant point!
This would be very nice feature. I miss the feature too. Another example - you may need to spend some money from project budget to complete the task (buy material/pay for service etc...), but at the moment, assignee needs to report the expense to project manger so he can record the expense at the project level and it takes time... . If there is allocated budget for activity, task assignee should be able to use it without time spending communication about expenses if the expense is planned.
