How to Use a Baseline

 

ProProfs Project lets you set a baseline to capture a task's start/end date. It will be a reference point in case of changes during the task duration. Managers & leaders can use it to track progress and compare updates.

 

Here’s what a baseline will look like in ProProfs Project.
