Task Dependency in Zoho Projects

How to set dependencies for tasks in Zoho Projects?

Task Dependency is a relationship in which a task relies on another task(s) to be performed before it can be done. The task that depends on the completion of the previous task is the dependent task, and the task it depends on is the predecessor task. In Zoho Projects dependency view helps the project team to get a bird's eye view of the dependent tasks with details like, task owners, the dependency list and when these tasks need to be completed.

Dependency List

Task Dependency view displays the tasks sorted by start date. The tasks created with the duration only will get displayed here. You can view all the dependent tasks associated with a task, by clicking the dependency link from the action menu.

Predecessor View

You can set dependency between tasks from this view. You must click on the Predecessor column against any particular task, enter the parent tasks S.No, and then click 'Enter' to save the dependency data.

Edit Task Details

If you edit the task's finish date, all the dependent tasks duration will also be automatically updated. Furthermore, you can change the task owner by selecting the required user(s) from the list. Task owners will be notified about the task dependency through an email.
