Placeholder rates
Placeholder assignments take their charge out rate from the role rate of the project they are on. They are the same as normal assignments.

For example, if you add a Developer to Project A and the Developer Project Rate is $150, then the placeholder will have a rate of $150 too.

Placeholder costs
Placeholders have a cost to a project but not to the business as a whole. The cost comes from the "Default role cost" which can be changed by editing a role.

When you are looking at a single project or the project report, they will have a cost.

When you are viewing overall profits and costs (e.g the planner graphs) they do not have a cost (because Runn does not know if you will hire someone external for the assignments or use someone internally).
