Project Scheduling Logs

Hello Experts,

We have a requirement where we need complete log of rescheduling the project activity that means system should save the previous scheduling data as baseline, each time we reschedule that project. For example:

A project is scheduled in the start with proper relationship with six month of total period. After one month, activity dates are changed or some new activities are added. Complete project is rescheduled and dates are changed. Now the system should save the previous dates of all activities as a baseline and new dates to the activities should be assigned. It should happen each time we reschedule the project. In SAP standard system over writes the dates but does not save the previous dates.

Please guide in this regard that how can we meet this requirement. Thanking in advance.

Regards

    Create a Project version before you do scheduling.

    Hi

    In planning board you have this option,whenever you reschedule a project, it shows the previous date bar with a diffrent color and the rescheduled dates.But once saved and when you reopen the project, you cannot see the old dates.

    Your expectation in the thread is that you want to have a history of the dates, whenever you reschedule the project.

    The solution can be a combination of User status and a version profile for automic version creation for this user status.

    In your case you can define two user status for the activity,

    the first one(initial status) forbidding the rescheduling

    the second one which permits reshedule

    So whenver the user want to reschedule, he has to go to the second status before rescheduling.

    Create a version profile which versions the project automatically in this second status.

    But I am afraid of a disadvantage out here,the user should set the status back to first one after rescheduling.To avoid this you can try out some enhancement which sets the status back to first one whenever you exit the project.
