A task dependency shows a relationship and connection between tasks that indicates a particular order in which these tasks have to be performed.
In GanttPRO, dependencies are depicted with orange arrows.
Once you add a new task, hover over its bar on a Gantt chart. You will see little circles at each end of it. To set dependencies, just connect those circles according to the type of the dependency you need.
There are 4 different types of dependencies:
– Finish to start (task B can’t start before task A is finished);
– Finish to finish (task B can’t be finished before task A is completed);
– Start to start (task B can start after task A has started);
– Start to finish (task B can’t be finished before task A starts).
Note that if you increase or decrease the amount of time for a task with dependencies, all the other tasks it is connected to, will also move on a timeline. In that case, you will also see the indication of the completion delay for all the connected tasks.
