Creating a baseline in bigpicture

Having created a backlog in Jira over a number of work packages, we are looking to create a baseline within the Gantt View of BigPicture. Does anyone have any tips on the correct format view or how to create the baseline and how to manage against it on a regular cadence?

Hi @Alasdair McKie

To assess the performance of your project over time, you can set Baselines and track deviations from your initial schedule.  

Please find a short video that shows how to create & display Baselines.

More info you will find in the documentation. 

Please tag me if you have further questions. 

Hi @Anna-SoftwarePlant Thank you that is greatly appreciated and useful. I was wondering if you could assist on the following question directly related to baseline multiple projects. If I create multiple boxes for different work packages but only baselined one of them and then create an all up board to bring them altogether. Would the baseline carry over to the all up board for that individual work package or is it only baselined against that specific box.

Hello @Alasdair McKie 

The baseline activation is limited to a particular box/project, so this information will be visible only in the project/box where it has been specified. For your example, I believe an additional use case test should be performed Alasdair, in order to be sure you can achieve what you are looking for when it comes to baselines.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
