protecting baseline cells from manual updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • in our Project server 2010 configuration, we have the ability to set/clear all baselines blocked for all but a few selected staff. 

    The specific setting are: in the security group for "save unprotected baseline" both allow and deny are unchecked. in the project web access permissions, both the save protected and save unrptected baselines are enabled.

    The testing we've done as far as users in the group(s) that have the functionality "not allowed" works as far as the set & clear baseline functions. However we've found that several of the individual baseline cells can be manually updated by this same set of users. Specifically, the user can enter a new date into the baseline start or finish dates and the update is saved, while they can't edit the baseline cost field.

    Any thoughts?

  • You're correct.  The other solution would be to implement some VBA that runs
    on change to undo any changes to the baseline fields.

  • Andrew, Andrew, Andrew;

    I was hoping for a configuration error on our part (our IT group doesn't like VBA). Sounds like a hole that needs to be plugged.

    Thanks for info.
