- Every so often, you need to edit a baseline…after you save it.…For example, the stakeholders might approve…some additional scope and you need to add that…to the baseline.…Or you might need to change baseline values…that turned out to not be correct.…You can re-save parts of a baseline…to see the new target values…while still keeping track…of existing variance from the plan.…First of all, if you haven't entered…any actual values, and you want to update the baseline,…you can just override it.…
Go to the Project tab and in the Schedule section,…click Set Baseline,…choose Set Baseline on the dropdown menu.…And then, in the Set Baseline dialog box,…select the baseline you want.…Keep the entire Project option selected…and click OK.…You're gonna see the warning…that the baseline has already been used…but you wanna override it,…so click Yes and now your baseline has been overwritten.…On the other hand, if you have entered actual values,…you can't do that approach.…
Let's say you're gonna add new tasks or update some of them…
