Set a baseline for your project
A project baseline can be used to compare your initial project plans, or the state of a project at certain key points as it progresses, to the current state of a project. When you set a baseline for a project in Project Web App, the data in several key task, resource, and assignment fields is captured and saved as a numbered set of baseline data. As your project progresses, you can refer back to that captured baseline data to see how your current data compares.
Note In some cases, you might not have permission to set a baseline for your project. If you are using Classic Permission Management, your administrator can choose whether to allow users to save protected and/or unprotected baselines. If you do not have permission to set a baseline, an error message appears when you click Set Baseline.
