Baseline information cleared from the project RRS feed

  • Question

  • After importing a project file to Project Online and publishing it, everything looked fine. but a few days later some of the Baseline data cleared form the project. 

    Baseline Start and Baseline Finish columns keep the values but Baseline cost and all time-phased data  such as BCWS is showing 0

    nothing particularly change on the project except some progress updates and a few date changes by user.

    As this happens on Online server I can not investigate logs etc.

    Any idea what  could be the reason?

  • Hi Naaser,

    The BCWS corresponds to the  cumulative timephased baseline costs up to the status date or today's date. Thus if the baseline costs disappeared, the BCWS too. I've not seen such a bug before, so I would say that it is probably due to a wrong manipulation of the user (maybe playing with interim plans, copying an interim plan which only contains start and finish into the baseline).


    Hope this helps,

  • Thanks a lot Guillaume,

    Helpful as usual.

    If this is the case ( which I guess it is!) does Microsoft support has a log on server that can be used to find out what change and when made this?

    Unfortunately, there is no log or/and backup and restore with Project Online. Maybe if you keep some reporting about the given project, it could give you some information.
