The baseline is the original scope, cost, and schedule of your initiative. Amplify allows you to record multiple baselines, select a baseline and set it as the active baseline. The baselined values can be made viewable on the dashboards and Gantt chart.
A best practice is to enable baselines at the highest level and disable it at all lower levels. Once a baseline is created at the top level, you can update it from lower levels. You can update baselines for benefits, schedules, and the project itself from time to time.
Setting a baseline will save the current state of the date within the business case.
This includes financial data:
- Planned Benefit
- Budget Costs
and non-financial data:
- Start and End Dates
- Custom fields
You can view the baselines on the Impact, Investment, NPV and Reporting dashboards. Schedule baselines can be viewed on the Gantt chart. On the chart and the timeline, it is demarcated by grey bars.
