Set baseline in a workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi , 

    It would be great if someone could provide some advice on this topic.

    I have to create a Project Server 2013 workflow. After one of the stages (approval of a published Schedule) a baseline has to be set automatically.

    How I can achieve this? Do I have to use CSOM, JSOM or may be I heed to create a macros for Project Professional?

    Thank you!

  • Hi,

    Another option would be move away from automatically saving the baselines and just checking if a particular field has been set (you can have the field calculated based on Baseline1Work etc). If the field value has not been set then the project will not move to the next stage and the PM can be notified. Also you can check different baselines for different stages (e.g. Baseline 0  - Stage 1, Baseline 2 - Stage 2 etc.).

    Hope this helps
