Hi there,

I have a query that I'm hoping someone will be able to help with - when adding a new activity to a project plan how do I ensure that the variance is tracked without resetting the baselines for the whole project? I am finding that if I add a new activity its baseline start and finish are not automatically populated.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi @Harriet Blackborow

    You're correct, Baselines are set at the start of the project and won't include rows that are added at a later date, since they weren't there at the beginning. You would need to re-set your Baseline in order to include newly added tasks into the Baseline.

    If you've already stared your project and have changed some of your Actual dates so that there's variance, you would want to change those dates back to the Original dates before you re-set the Baseline. Then you can use the Cell History feature to find the actual date again and update the Project to your current dates.

    Here's a webinar on the Baseline feature if it helps! You can also provide feedback to the Product team through this form here.
