Overview

The Baseline Chart compares tasks' current scheduled start and end dates to start and end dates tasks had on the date you specify. On the Baseline Chart, tasks are represented as bars, which stretch from the tasks' scheduled start to end dates. Each task has two bars: the one on top appears in a solid color and represents the task’s current scheduled dates, while the one on bottom has striped, diagonal lines and represents the task’s original scheduled dates. Task bars appear in one of five colors on the Baseline Chart:

  • Active tasks are blue.

  • Overdue tasks are red.

  • Completed tasks are green.

  • Canceled tasks are grey.

  • Deferred tasks are purple.
