Setting the currency of risk costs

If a risk occurs, it incurs cost. You can specify a currency for the costs of risks that might occur in your project. The only purpose of the currency is to be displayed with the consequence cost and the probability cost for a risk.

About this task

By default, the currency for the Formal Project Management process template is set to USD. You can set the currency either in the Project Area editor or in the Formal Project Management process template. The currency is only displayed with the consequence cost and the probability cost for a risk.
Remember:

By default, this feature is available in the Formal Project Management process template. If you are using the Scrum process template, you can enable this feature by customizing the template. For more information about customizing the template, see Adding formal project management features to a process template.
