Add incremental budget milestones / markers throughout the course of a Cost Tracker timeframe

Currently the Cost Tracker shows a total budget for the entire timeframe. However, our teams need to plan for the spend of a budget over time.


I.e. at the halfway point, is the team at, above, or below budget? 2 months into a 10 month project, are they spending the budget according to plan? etc. etc.


I believe that the ability to establish budget milestones would be a great way to accomplish this. For example:
6 month project with total budget of $6,000

User can add multiple milestones i.e.

- $1,000 after first month

- $2,000 after second month

etc. etc.

(each milestone set manually by the user to accomodate any use case - i.e. sometimes budget spend is even over time, but other times it may be to spend a lot in month 1 and less the remaining months, etc.)


Milestones would then be visually displayed on the chart.

    About 1/3rd of our projects are ongoing agreements with a monthly budget. At present I set the budget to be the monthly amount (so at least the monthly graphs looks OK) but having the power to define a budget amount per month (like shown in the mockups) would be great.

    The mockups are looking great: simple, intuitive.

    I can't wait for this feature!

    This request is related to https://tempo-cost-tracker.ideas.aha.io/ideas/VPRO-I-2 actually. I'd like to see a more flexible approach than just "monthly" though.
