Level of Effort tasks should be allowed to use EVM, should provide Earned Value

To select the "Based on a fixed total number of worked hours" or "Based on project calendar progress" options for a folio, you have to first turn off EVM.

This does not make sense, because EVM best practices explicitly allow for Level of Effort (LOE) tasks. For instance, this article has a bullet on LOE tasks, and the two approaches they describe equate to the above 2 options in Tempo: https://www.pmi.org/learning/library/make-earned-value-work-project-6001

The current Tempo Budgets behavior means you can't include LOE tasks in a portfolio together with EVM tasks, because the LOE tasks will never generate EV, leading the portfolio to always show the task as over budget / behind schedule. This is frustrating because projects frequently have both LOE and task-based components that we want to track together to get overall EVM.
