To track your spendings across Departments or Projects, you can use the Document Cost Center.


To configure it please follow the steps below:

  1. Map all the Departments/Projects that you have.

  2. Think about who will be responsible for the procurement for these Departments/Projects. 

  3. Add/check users involved. Make sure that you have all the responsible users for all the Departments/Projects. Note: It would be useful to have at least one user who is responsible for all the Departments/Projects.

  4. Add in the Departments/Projects in Precoro.

  5. Define the user access to these Departments/Projects.

How to add the Departments/Projects:

  • Enable the Document Cost Centers in Configurations --> Other .

  • Navigate to the left-side of the menu and choose Configurations > Document Cost Centers Management

  • Press the Add button to create a new Document Cost Center. Add names for Departments and Projects to the name fields  based on your needs.

  • Set up the desired conditions for each Department or Project.

  • Add in all of the parameters. The parameters are the names and codes of the separate Departments/Projects.

  • In case you have a hierarchical tree of the Departments/Projects - use 2/3-level hierarchy. Below you will find a video that demonstrates the setting up of hierarchical Departments.

How to define the user access of the Departments and/or Projects:

  • After you have added all the Departments/Projects and made it available in some documents - navigate to the user configuration page.

  • Now set it up for each user one by one.

What does this all mean?


When the user creates the documents, Precoro require him/her to select the Department (as configured) and thus, the allowed list of Departments will be shown as available.
