How does it tie in with CQPIM Core?
The plugin impacts many components of the core plugin. On the admin dashboard, it will add a new information set to the earnings graph that also shows costs per month, so that you can see total profit per month at a glance.
It adds a metabox to the group member admin web page that shows their costs and a graph to see month-to-month spending.
Since costs can be assigned to projects, it will show new metaboxes in each and every project that show linked costs and will also add these costs to the Project Financials table to show profit immediately after expense deductions.
