Budget Milestones

Create and manage a budget plan with key milestones that allow you to track your Google Maps Platform or Google Cloud spend against important dates or costs during a specified budget period. OnSpend gives you the option to subscribe to budget milestone notifications for a billing account, project or resource group.

Invoiced Month Tracking

View and analyze spend by invoiced months in both custom export and automated report configurations.

Unexpected/Irregular Trend Monitoring (BETA)

Google Cloud Invoice Analysis (BETA)

OnSpend’s other new beta feature helps you view and analyze your Google Cloud monthly billing statement. It delivers them automatically to your email inbox and provides both a summary of charges and gives you a link where you can view detailed spend data related to the invoice.

More Accessible Billing Export Data

You can now access your billing export table data in two ways, via the default BigQuery export table or an authorized view. This gives you expanded access controls when you’re adding new Google direct-billing accounts in OnSpend.

Improved Permission-Sharing Dialog

Updates to the permission-sharing dialog box now require you to confirm changes made to OnSpend resource permissions. You also can now make multiple changes without reopening the share dialog box.

Elevated User Permissions

If you move a resource or add a new resource group, users with higher-level access will automatically receive elevated permissions.
