Baselines for New Tasks
I use the baseline feature with the GUI extensively in my projects. During project execution, I frequently am adding/removing tasks to reflect the maturing scope of work. This means that unless I rebaseline the entire project (and lose historical projections in the process), these newly added rows go without baseline data. This is impacting a lot of my task health reporting. Is there a best practice that can be used to baseline only newly-added tasks, without rebaselining an entire timeline?
The only thing which comes to mind would be to copy-paste newly added start/finish dates into a static column, and use formulas which determine task health from the static column if the real baseline columns are blank for that row. However this becomes a very manual step, and I don't think my organization will have good compliance with this every time they add a task.
