When a branch is taken, Portfolio Manager runs the impact analysis and highlights:
- if other projects have branched from the same baseline elements
- if other projects have planned changes to any of those elements
- If other projects are proposing or planning to retire any of those elements
If there are planned updates, the Impact Analysis will highlight where planned version(s) exist and direct the modeller to choose the newest planned element* for the branch.
(* There may be several planned versions of an element in the model, each with it’s own date for implementation)
