By cloning a funding source, you’re able to automatically apply a newly created funding source to all project spend plans where the reference funding source is currently applied. This makes it easy when a new fiscal year rolls around to automatically allocate down funding to OUs and projects and then add them to project spend plans in a single operation.
You can increase or decrease the new amount of the funding source during the clone operation. When you change from the original amount, it will change the amount planned for all projects proportionally. For instance, if the original funding source had $15,000 in funds that was planned for Project A at $2,000 and Project B for $3,000, if the new funding source funds are increased to $30,000 (doubled), then the funds planning for Project A would be $4,000 and Project B would be $6,000.
