Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hello All,

I'm a longtime P6 user looking to make the switch to PP (at last!). As I get ready to do so, I would like some best practices for comparing a series of project updates back to previous baseline(s). Is it done within PP or via some other 3rd Party software?

Thanks, Tim

Thanks Mike,

I'm actually interested in full forensic comparison rather than simply referencing baseline dates - I understand Elecosoft has an add on called Project Comparison? Is that what you use, and if so what do you think of it compared to say Acumen Fuse? or are there other options?

Regards, Tim

Hi Tim

Every base date for progress is recorded within the software so that you can trace progress from strt to finish.

THis is invaluable when tracking progress for an EOT claim As Built record.

Good luck with the switch, you won't regret it.

Best regards
