Baseline for Subprojects in MS PROJECT 2013


Today I’m going to explain how to set and see Baseline for Subprojects in MS PROJECT 2013, and how to see those Baselines in Master Project!

First I’m going to create two Brand new Projects with one Task:




After saving this two Projects I’m going to create Master Project:


and I’m going to import Subprojects:


After importing the Second Project I’ll get:


I’ll switch Table to Variance:


and I’’ get:


Now I will save the Baseline in Master Project:




Finally I’ll get:


As you can see, there is a Baseline for Tasks in Master Project, and for summary Tasks in Subprojects, but there is no Baseline for Tasks in Subprojects. To get those I’ll save the baseline for each Subproject separately:


The Procedure of saving Baseline in Subprojects is same as ion Master Project so I’ll not waste time to show you a picture. After saving the Baseline in each Subprojects when I look at the Master Project I will see this:


Voila! I can see Baselines for Task in Subprojects!

Piece of cake!

    Unfortunately, this will not help me. I have multiple sub-projects and I wish to have all sub-project baseline dates unique. For example, Sub-project 1 will have a baseline on May1, 2018, sub-project 2 will have a baseline on July 1, 2018. I would not want to simply use baseline 1 for the second sub-project, baseline 2 for the 3rd sub-project…and so on. Each sub-project will begin on it’s own baseline, unique to the other sub-projects.
    Thank you
