Budget Overview

Jennifer Sneider Updated by Jennifer Sneider

Costume, Props, and Set Dec departments can create Budgets. If you are a member of multiple departments, you can only access one department at a time in Budgeting. 

Use the Product Switcher in the top left-hand corner and select Budgeting to navigate to your Budget. 

Product Switcher

If you are working on a traditional episodic production, Budgets are episode-specific. Use the Episode Selector to select the episode. 

Note: If you would like to amortize your Budget, create an Amort episode.

A box at the top of the Budget page shows a running total of your Budget in a blue bar, updating your total as you enter amounts. Your Budget is further broken down underneath the blue bar, showing a total for each category of your Budget.

Budget

All departments have a Miscellaneous tab to budget for miscellaneous expenses.


Costume

The first time you navigate to the Budget, you are prompted to verify the Characters you want to budget for. 

We recommend creating the Character Changes in Continuity before beginning to budget. 

The Costume department budgets by Character, Change, or Item. There are separate tabs for Principal and Background Characters. 

If you choose to budget by Item, create the Items in the Budget. Items from Continuity do not transfer into Budgeting, and any Items you create in Budgeting will not appear in Continuity.

Props

The first time you navigate to the Budget, the Props Budget automatically populates with Props assigned to Scenes in Continuity.

The Props department budgets by Scene or by Category, and there are separate tabs for each. 

Props assigned to Scenes or Categories in Continuity automatically appear here. Any Props you create in the Budget will automatically appear in Continuity. 


Set Dec

The first time you navigate to the Budget, you are prompted to verify the Sets you want to budget for. 

We recommend creating Sets in Continuity before beginning to budget. 

The Set Dec department budgets by Set Type. There are separate tabs for Standing, Swing, Location, and Other. Any Sets that are not assigned to Standing, Swing, or Location exist on the Other tab.

If you choose to budget by Set Piece, create the Set Pieces in the Budget. Set Pieces from Continuity do not transfer into Budgeting, and any Set Pieces you create in Budgeting will not appear in Continuity.
