Track Tempo Planner planned time against (Folio) Budget

Note: This is very similar to https://ideas.tempo.io/ideas/T-I-151, but without remaining estimates, and for Tempo OnPremise Budgets/Planner, not Cloud Cost Tracker.

I have a very simple use-case and am dumbfounded that there seems to be no solution for this, even if you use more or less all Tempo products simultaneously:

We have projects with fixed budgets. I want to plan time (in Tempo Planner!) on them and make sure that I don't overplan/underplan compared to the budget/Planned Costs.

  1. First we tried to add the budget to the account and plan time against the account. Neither of which works. Ok, so we try to do everything using Budgets Folios.

  2. Time planned in Tempo Planner is only detected in Folio when it's planned against an issue, not against the project. See https://ideas.tempo.io/ideas/T-I-255. Ok, so we create a dummy issue per project to plan against.

  3. And now ... there is no way to see how much time we have planned in Tempo Planner compared to the Planned Costs of the Folio. It is hard to believe that this is not possible?

Please, add the Tempo Planner planned time into the Folio as a real-time value, so we can compare currently planned time against pre-planned costs, maybe even see a forecast whether we are planning enough/too much time compared to the planned costs.

Ideally, I would like to get a warning during planning if I exceed the planned costs of the Folio, but for the time being, the ability to compare those values somewhere, anywhere, would be enough.
