Enhancement Request: Why Are the Baseline (BL) Project Not-Started Activities Count Updated When a New Activity is Added to the Current Project, But Not to the Baseline? (Doc ID 2422879.1)

Last updated on APRIL 06, 2020

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version 8.0 and later
Primavera P6 Professional Project Management - Version 8.0 and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



When adding an Activity to a Project in P6, the 'BL Project Not-Started Activities' count field is updated. This occurs even when the Activity has not been directly added to the Baseline.


The expectation is that Activities not contained in the Baseline do not increase the BL Project status count fields (BL Project Not-Started Activities, BL Project In-Progress Activities, BL Project Completed Activities).


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Login to P6 Pro Client.
  2. Open a Project.
  3. Create a Baseline and assign as the Project Baseline.
  4. Add the field 'BL Project Not-Started Activities' to the layout.
  5. Add an Activity to the current Project.
  6. The 'BL Project Not-Started Activities' count is increased.
