The activity schedule is a feature within the Contracts Module of CEMAR that allows a user to breakdown the price of a contract into a detailed list of components, each of which has a price which is summed together to give the overall contract price. Note that currently the price of a contract and the activities don't directly sum in CEMAR, users need to enter in them separately.

Start by navigating to the Contracts section. Within here, search for the relevant contract you wish to upload the activity schedule and then click on pencil icon on the right to enter the contract:

Should you wish to delete an activity item, select the bin icon. However, if a padlock icon is presented in place of this, you will be unable to delete the activity item as it has already been referenced within the Contract.

You may then view and report on the activity schedule report on a Contract level by navigating to the left-hand expandable menu and selecting Reports > Summary Reports > Activity Schedule:
