Bastion Project Versions allows you to analyze the whole project retrospective. This helps organization to capture lesson learned and measure project management effectiveness.
You can track and analyze key project parameters and view its trends. For example, you can determine how accurate was the initial budget estimate and how the budget has been changed over the project lifecycle.
You can compare any two versions of the project and quickly identify all differences between the versions. The compare view shows you who made the changes and what has been changed. For example, you can identify added, removed or changed tasks in your schedule.
Unlike the baseline Bastion Project Version stores completely all task fields including custom fields, assignments, timephased values and even deleted tasks.
You can configure Project Versions to track and store new version any time when project saved. Or you can configure the tool to create new version when project published.
Any time the plan changes a new version is automatically created. You can use version historical data for subsequent analysis. Unlike the baselines (which are only 11) the maximum number of project versions is limited only by your database storage.
You can restore a project plan from any available version. The project will be fully recovered from the selected version.
You can view or remove any saved versions. You can create new project version (schedule snapshot) manually whenever you want. You can add comments for any created project version/snapshot. For example you can mark the project snapshot “Changed due to steering committee decision”.
You can configure Bastion Project Versions to automatically create a new version of the project each time the specified event occurs. For example, each time anybody saves a project, a new version with an minor number is created. For each project publication, a version with the major number is created.
The tool can record for you a status of a project at the decision points, or when a project moves to the next workflow stage. You can track project changes throughout the lifecycle of the project, including the initiation phase.
Versions are saved automatically in background. No user action required.
You can configure versioning engine to automatically create a new version of the a project every time when specified events occur.
The tool is available for on-premises Project Server and for hosted Project Server
