Ms project updating task status updates resource status
Ensure that all your project plans are not checked out in any session before you preview the impact to your schedule and accept all pending status updates from all the projects you manage from the ‘Approvals (Tasks)’ page.
Changes will not be visible to the organisation in PWA and reports until project plan is published.
TIP If you’re not sure whether a plan already has a saved baseline (or multiple baselines), or if you’d like to see when a baseline was saved, here’s what to do: On the Project tab, in the Schedule group, click the Set Baseline button, and then click the Set Baseline command.
In the Set Baseline field of the dialog box, any previously saved baselines in the plan will be indicated by the dates they were saved.
After saving an initial baseline plan, you might need to fine-tune the plan by adding or removing tasks or assignments or making other adjustments.
To keep an accurate baseline for later comparison, you have several options: In the chart portion of this view, the tasks as they are currently scheduled appear as blue bars (if they are not critical tasks) or red bars (if they are critical tasks).
