Dependency links

The Board 2.0 introduces a new concept of links which are referred to as soft-links and strong links.

The soft-link can be mapped to a Jira dependency link, just like other dependencies in the app in the Link configuration.

Feature

Description

Correct links (healthy dependency)

The healthy dependencies are presented when the successor is planned in the same (orange lines) or future (green lines) timebox (Program Increment or Iteration).

Incorrect links (unhealthy dependency)

The unhealthy dependencies are indicated with a red coloured line, when the successor is planned in the previous timebox (Program Increment or Iteration).

None

Dependencies are not displayed.

All

All dependencies are displayed.

Soft links are just and information about a dependency between to tasks and have no scheduling impact.

Soft-links can be created using drag and drop or by clicking on the link ring which appears on the right edge of the card when you hover over the card with the mouse pointer.

There are four standard types of dependencies which are called 'strong' link which have a scheduling impact.

When in auto scheduling mode such links will adjust the linked task's dates:

  • End to Start
  • End to End
  • Start to End
  • Start to Start

Strong links are displayed as a dashed lines and you can use them to indicate when a task should begin or end in relation to other tasks.

Strong-links can be only created by clicking on the link rings which appears on the right edge of the card when you hover over the card with the mouse pointer.

Such links can be visualised also using the Gantt module. To learn more about strong links go to Task dependencies - Link types.
