How to Use "Predecessors"?

The predecessor function allows visualizing dependencies between different projects, project phases and work packages in a fast and easy way. This function enables you to choose different ways of setting connections. For example, it is possible to set a predecessor with a meaning: if the first project ends, the second one starts. It is also possible to set the predecessor as Start to Start (SS) or End to End (FF) schemes. To establish a connection between two elements, first chose a customer. Then, find the elements to be joined, and enter the number of the element that is the predecessor of the second element under "Predecessor". You can also fix an existing Predecessor. If the predecessor is fixed, you have a strong knot between the projects. That means, when you want to change date or duration of projects, you can simply drag & drop them and as a result, both projects will be dragged & dropped.

How to Set a Fixed "Predecessors"?

To fixate a "Predecessors", first you have to set a predecessors like it is described above. After that, make a right click on the existing knot between the projects and choose “Fix”. The knot is now red and fixed.
