Critical Path Won't Display


Hi, I have a sheet that refuses to display the red critical path. I've been up and down the sheet looking for missing links and parallel scope and I still can't figure it out. Can someone please help?

    Hi @MzJones, do you have this button on?

    Yes I do, and I've toggled it off and on and restarted the app to no avail

    Hi @MzJones,

    If your Project Setting's predecessors are linked as (finish-to-start), could you please try the following:

    • Create a Checkbox type column named "Critical Task?"
    • Apply column formula =IF(ISCRITICAL([Task Name]@row), 1, 0)

    This would identify tasks / rows with the longest distance between your start and finish dates. If you don't see any ticked checkboxes (you can also apply a filter to view and consolidate tasks on critical path), it may be something to do with your Project Settings setup. If all else fails, highly recommend Smartsheet's Project Tracking And Rollup template as a starting ground. Let me know how it goes!
