Task Dependency Setting | Online Help | Zoho Project

Task Dependency Settings

Configure task dependency settings and set default dependency type. Move up or extend dates of successor tasks or reschedule them based on completion date of predecessor task.

Benefits:

  1. Move up dates of successor tasks if the predecessor task moves up
  2. Extend due dates of successor tasks if the predecessor task is extended
  3. Change schedule of successor tasks based on completion of the predecessor tasks
  4. Set the default dependency type which can be changed when setting dependency

Configure Dependency Settings

  1. Click in the upper-right corner of Zoho Projects and select Portal Configuration.
  2. Select Task & Timesheet in the left panel and scroll down to find Task Dependency where custom options for the project can be chosen.
  3. Select the required options.
  4. Click Update.
You can also navigate to Task Dependency Settings by clicking on the icon in the right corner of the Gantt chart page beside Scroll to Unscheduled Tasks.

Set Default Dependency Type

You can configure Task Dependency Settings to set the default dependency type.

  1. Click in the upper-right corner of Zoho Projects and select Portal Configuration in the left panel.
  2. Select Task & Timesheet in the left panel and scroll down to find Task Dependency.
  3. Select the Default Dependency Type drop-down menu to choose the type of dependency.
  4. Click Update.

When selecting Automatic, the dependency type will be assigned automatically based on the dates specified for the parent and child tasks. Automatic is most useful when you don't want to shift the dates for the child task.
