Baseline Comparison

The Baseline Comparison Report displays a side-by-side comparison of items and relationships in two baselines.

This report is like the Baseline Compared to Current report, but instead compares two specific states of selected items at a certain point in time. For example, you can compare the baseline that's created when you open a review with a baseline of the completed review to see what changed.

  2. Select Reports in the upper right corner of the header to open the Run Reports window.

Note

When comparing baselines, the hierarchical order must be the same between the two baselines. If items are reordered in the Explorer Tree from one baseline to the next, the report shows incorrect or no results.
