I have a question from my Blog reader: “Hi, How can I update Baseline with new Tasks if Project has Tasks with Actual data, e.g I don’t want to loose those actual data, nor I want to change Baseline for those Tasks”
It is very simple. I will show how to do that in MS PROJECT 2013.
First I am going to Create new Project with three Tasks, and I will link them:
Now I am going to save the Baseline:
OK, let’s look at the Tracking Gantt View:
Now suppose that Task 1 was started at 26.02.2014, and finished at 01.10.2014:
and I’ll get:
Now suppose that I have another two Tasks:
Those Task are not “Baselined” as you can se at the Picture above. Now, if I save the Baseline as I did for the whole Project I will get:
As you can see, Baseline is aligned with Actual data for Task1 to Task 3, and I do not want that.
So I will Select only new Task and I will create Baseline like this:
and I will get:
As you can see, Task 4, and Task 5, are now “Baselined”, and Task 1, Task 2, and Task 3, are as they was!
Hope this helps!
