Task Dependency is a relationship in which a task is dependent on other task(s).
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.
We've put help snippets for you to know more about Task Dependencies implemented in Zoho Projects.
Predecessor task is whose start or finish date determines the start or finish date of it's successor task. You can set dependency between tasks from this view. You can click the Predecessors column against any particular task, enter the parent task's S.No and then click Enter to save the dependency link.
A warning message about task conflicts is displayed if the dependent tasks share the same dates. The warning message is also displayed whenever there are other kinds of date conflicts between the dependent tasks.
will also be updated to reflect the number of days or hours shifted in the Finish date of the corresponding predecessor task.
A successor or dependent task will have a Start date later than the predecessors Finish date.
You can close a successor task only if its predecessor task(s) is closed. A warning message is displayed, if you try to close a dependent task without closing its predecessor task(s).
You can add comments about predecessors, view the task dependency list and task details from the Dependency view.
