Is multiple baselines supported in SmartSheet?
I would like to know whether SmartSheet supports multiple baselines. Generally, I use MPP for project planning, wherein i have "Baseline1 Start", "Baseline1 Fisnish", "Baseline Start", "Baseline Fisnish", "Actual Start", "Actual Finish" in my Tracking Gantt.
When i prepare a project plan and have the same reviewed and approved by the stakeholders, i baseline the plan and this becomes the "Baseline Start" and "Baseline Finish". During the project execution, any change in plans (due to delays, additional tasks needs to be done, which wasn't earlier planned) are saved as "Baseline1 Start" and "Baseline1 Fisnish". At any time in the project, i can see how far we are deviating from the original plan (Baseline).
In Smartsheet, i have tried out the same i.e i have the same columns as i used to have in my MPP; but the issue, i face is that whenever i set the predeccessor, the "Baseline" dates changes and not the "Baseline1" dates, so at any time, i am not able to see what was earlier plan v/s what is the current trend of the task.
This is becoming tedious in working with multiple baselines.
