Issue/Introduction

Is there any documentation on getting started with baseline use when integrating the MSP (Microsoft Project) Interface and Clarity? 

Environment

Release : All Supported Releases

Component : Clarity SAAS MICROSOFT PROJECT (MSP)

Resolution

To Optimize performance, only export the current baseline to MSP

  • Each baseline is a snapshot of the project plan, so the more baselines there are, the longer it takes to open/save the project 
  • The change to only export the current baseline is made in Clarity under Administration->Project Management->Settings. Make sure when making this change, that no projects are currently checked out to MSP or OWB or baseline data may get deleted. 
  • See MSP Performance Issues - Best Practices to Prevent for more tips on optimizing performance with MSP: 

For more information on baselines with MSP and Clarity see the documentation links below

           Highlight: The application can support unlimited baselines, but Microsoft Project supports only 11 baselines.
