Additional baseline functionality would be extremely helpful. Currently only having the ability to utilize baselines through snapshots is not very useful. 

Having a checkbox to "set baseline" and having that be available to export via the API would be an immense help.

Is there any update on this feature? Would be really useful for us too to export baseline info

Hi everyone, apologies for the delay in response here.

The Product team currently have no plans to add this suggestion to the short-term roadmap. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know.

Even if we cannot export the baseline info, can we generate a report showing baseline dates compared to current dates?

Being able to use the baseline dates in custom reports would be helpful.   This would allow for tracking current dates against baseline dates

Thank you for your feedback Carol Beasley Joe DelCampo! Currently, it's only possible to view baselines on Gantt Chart snapshots and in Analytics view. I'll let you know if there are any changes here.

Has the functionality for exporting baseline dates or accessing in an API changed since the last posting?  If this capability now exists, can you advise how to access?

Hi Michael Mirasole, welcome to the Community 🙂

I don't have any updates regarding the suggestion in this thread. It would be great if you could share a bit of context around your use case in case someone could suggest a workaround!

Thank you for the feedback.  I naturally see the value in utilizing snapshots to evaluate project basic slippage (days or %). 

The issue with not being able to extract baselines along with the rest of the project schedule is that, for more complex projects, it prevents further offline analytical work. For example, we'd like to see how performance to various baseline schedules changes as new baselines are accepted or approved (doesn't appear there is any native functionality in Wrike to do this so we'd need to export into a different tool (e.g. Excel)). 

Another use case is that we are extracting portions of schedules through the API into a separate automated dashboard presentation.  Without baselines coming along with the API request, there is no ability to compare the current plan with previously captured baseline snapshots so we can represent this in the online dashboard.

There are a few other lesser uses, but these are the one's providing the biggest challenge.  If there are current capabilities or workarounds, I'd be interested to understand.  Also, can you comment if there are any development plans to include baselines in exports and/or API requests in the future?

Currently, we haven't used it but the workaround is to add a static date custom field at the moment and then the team uses the start/finish date for the project. And we create a formula to see the difference between those dates and the deviation %

As I had mentioned.. this is only a theory.. and a workaround.

Our team uses the snapshot view sparingly... while it is great to have a visual representation we prefer numbers, a value and something that is exportable would be really great.

Hi Michael Mirasole, thank you very much for your detailed reply. As Lisa mentioned, at the moment we don't have any updates regarding the implementation of this idea, however, we will keep passing your feedback to our Product Development Team 🙂 In case we are informed about any future plans to develop this suggestion, we will let you know.

Are there any updates on this? This seems to be a very basic project management need - to be able to create a report that shows baseline dates vs. actual.

Hi Liz Morrison, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. May I kindly ask you to elaborate a bit on your use case? Am I correct in understanding that the options mentioned in this thread, such as Gantt chart snapshots or Wrike Analyze, are not what you're looking for?

Thank you!
