Task Dependency is a relationship in which a task depends on other tasks that has to be performed completely, before it can be completed.
Task Dependency view helps the project team to get bird's eye view of dependent tasks. Also dependency view links tasks so that the dependent tasks are automatically adjusted when a top task is rescheduled. A sequence number is given to Tasks based on start date. Seq.No's are used when adding dependencies.
