Inter-project dependencies provide a way for you to show that a project (i.e. its task or deliverable) is dependent on the completion of another project’s task. Dependencies are the relationships of the preceding tasks to the succeeding tasks. The most common dependency relationship is a finish-to-start relationship. This means that a task P (predecessor) must finish before task S (successor) can start. Please refer to the Task Dependencies article to know more about the types of dependencies supported in Celoxis.
Setting up inter-project dependencies
- First, you need to identify the project’s tasks or deliverables that are dependent on another project’s task to finish.
- For each of these tasks, navigate to the Predecessor section in the Edit Task dialogue.
- Add a row and select the predecessor task from the list.
- You can also specify the type of dependency and the lag (or lead) time that would exist between the 2 tasks.
Viewing inter-project dependencies
To view inter-project dependencies, you will need to create a task report of output type ‘Gantt’.
