Budget load vs. budget deviation

While translating the account_budget module I noticed that the percentage on the budget lines shows the budget load. But in most budget reporting systems i know the budget deviation is shown.

Maybe we should change the behavior to show the budget deviation, too? I think the current behavior may confuse users that come from other systems to Tryton.

I agree that what you mention is probably the expected behavior for most users.

I’m not sure because the ratio is used for expense and also income.
But what is your definition of “budget deviation”?

I do not see any relation to the ratio here.

budget load = balance / record.total_amount
budget deviation = balance / record.total_amount - 100

For a budget against expense it is better to see what is remaining to expense.

It is probably better better to show both and with Per user list view definition user could choose.
