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.
Benefits of using a baseline:
Analyze the task’s progress as compared to the baseline
Measure the difference between two distinct time periods
Step 1: Open a project on your ProProfs Project Dashboard and select Gantt Chart.
Step 2: Click Capture Baseline to capture the current position of tasks. A pop-up opens.
Step 3: Enter the name and click Save.
Step 4: You can load your previous baseline if your task’s start and end dates are changed for some reason.
Here is how it will appear.
The translucent bars represent the baseline.
That is all about the baseline feature in ProProfs Project.
