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 JULY 26, 2018

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 8.2.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR:

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.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

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).

STEPS:

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.
