Dependency Status in Task Details Page | Online Help | Zoho Projects

Dependency Status

Users can view dependent tasks and their status (either Waiting for or Blocking ) in the task details page. If the dependency status in a task's detail page is shown as Waiting for, it means the task is waiting for other tasks to be completed before it can be start. If the status is shown as Blocking, it means the task is blocking other tasks from starting before its completion. Task dependency status lets you know if a task is waiting for other tasks or is blocking other tasks from completion.

Tasks can be filtered by dependency status in all the task views and saved as a custom view in the Classic and Plain view. This setting can be enabled from Global Setup ().
