Adjust dependency settings at the top to modify the view.

Displaying Dependencies

Expanded

Depending on the business rules, dependencies will be displayed as arrows:

Link
Non ASAP

ASAP

Soft dependency

External links

Broken Dependencies

If a strong dependency cannot be fulfilled because of other scheduling rules it is displayed as an orange arrow (soft dependencies don't have a scheduling impact; therefore, they cannot be "broken").

Inert Dependencies

On Gantt, an Inert dependency is a strong dependency for which a target task is in a manual or locked mode, and therefore the dependency has no scheduling impact.

Inert dependencies have less color saturation (see the comparison below).

Non-ASAP

ASAP


The number of dependencies exceeds module capability

If the number of dependencies is too high to handle visually, they won't be shown in the form of arrows. 

You can view the full dependency list in the Inforbar.

Collapsed

If a task has any dependencies, they are indicated as a number in a dot. 

To view dependency information, click on the dot.

 

After clicking on the dot, you will see a list of:

  • outward dependencies → this means that the task you have clicked on is a source (starting point) of outgoing dependencies. The target tasks (the endpoints of the dependencies) are listed.

  • inward dependencies → this means that the task you have clicked on is a target (endpoint) of dependencies. The source tasks (starting points of the dependencies) are listed.

In this view, dependency information is limited (only the task keys and direction of a dependency are listed). There is no differentiation between external/soft/strong dependencies. 

You can't edit a dependency in this view. To edit a dependency, switch to the "expanded" view.
