Activity dependency: Link column

Activity Center > Activities

 

When an activity is in dependency with one or more master ones, e.g. it is set to start in 3 days after the other finishes, the master activity’s ID appears in the Dependency field along with the dependency symbol ().

To edit  the dependency:

 

1.

Click the dependency symbol (e.g. ).

2.

Make changes, as appropriate.

3.

Click 'Apply'.

 

 

Example:

In the illustration, ‘Layout’ activity (ID 176) is dependent on ‘Design’ one (ID 104). The ‘104’ next to the dependency symbol points at the ‘Design’ activity as the master one.

 

 

 

 

Illustration: Task 176 is in a dependency with Task 104.

 

Dependency on a critical path

 

When a dependent activity belongs to a critical path, the dependency symbol is yellow.
