In this MS Project tutorial, you will learn how to easily create and display a baseline schedule.

To get started, go to the project ribbon and click “Set Baseline”. Select the baseline schedule you want to create. For our example, we will select reference schedule 2 . Click "OK" . The “Start” and “End” reference schedules are then created by making a copy of the start and end of the current schedule.

Now add the “Start of Reference 2” and “End of Reference 2” columns . To display the baseline schedule on the Gantt chart, go to the "Format" ribbon, click on "Bars" and "Styles" . At this level, you will add a new line at the end.

In our example, we will only display the reference end date. Add a new line named “Reference 2 End Date” . In the "Represents tasks" section, add "Normal" . Remove the middle bar .

Then add the target format at the end and choose the color red . For "Start", put "Start of Reference 2" and for "End", put "End of Reference 2" . Click "OK" .

You can now see the end of reference display on all tasks. If you want to display the reference end only for certain tasks, go to "Format", "Bars" and "Styles" .

In the "End of Reference 2" line that we added, insert in "Represents the tasks" a semicolon and "Indicator2" . Click "OK" . Add the “Indicator 2” column .

Choosing "Yes" in this column will display the baseline finish date on the Gantt chart for the specific tasks.

And there you have it, in a few simple steps, you have created and displayed a baseline schedule in Microsoft Project. Thank you for following us and see you soon for a new tutorial.
