  1. If you can show how to update new baseline from old baselines. There are hundreds of activities to update in new baseline. what is the way of doing it ? I’ve tried import/export using excel but the updated activities come out of their WBS

    1. When you need to update a baseline of a project, you can restore it to become a normal project (In menu Project -> Maintain Baseline). Update it. Then convert it to baseline.

  2. In my schedules your first step in which we have to select the “link budget” option. It is not getting selected. It in fixed mode where we cant select it. What should i do?
