Issue/Introduction

The "Create Baseline" (project Baseline) has disappeared from the Task (list) Action menu after a new Task Action item was added to the Task (List) Action view.

How do we get it back there again?

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Log into to Clarity PPM
  2. Go to Administration / Objects / Task
  3. Go to Views tab
  4. In Task List --> click on Actions Menu
  5. Click on General
  6. Add a new Action : for example, New Department
  7. Save and return
  8. Go to Home/Projects
  9. Open a project
  10. Click on Tasks tab
  11. Hover mouse over Actions (top right)

Expected Results: The Actions menu includes items Copy Task from Template, Create Baseline, Update Cost Total and New Department

Actual Results: The Actions menu no longer contains item Create Baseline .

Cause

This was analyzed by Engineering through DE51849 and decided that the scenario explained will not be fixed as it is a delicate product area where code changes could introduce some undesired side effects.

Environment

Any Clarity release

Resolution

To workaround the problem the Task List view will need to be restored to defaults.

Go to Administration > Studio > Views

Filter by Task object views

Select the view and Restore Defaults

NOTE: This will add the missing actions back to the menu, but will also restore user list views to default.
