Baseline Task Scheduling

Baseline Task Scheduling

The Start and Finish properties exposed by the TaskBaseLine class are used to read and write a task’s start and finish dates when the baseline was saved. Both properties support the DateTime data type.

After saving a baseline, the task baseline schedule can be viewed in Microsoft Project:

  1. From the View menu, select More Views and then Task Entry.
  2. From the Insert menu, select Columns.
  3. Add the desired columns.
