Please add a successor column or function

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

A way to show successors is needed. It's important for critical path scheduling that every task has a predecessor and a successor. After a couple hundred lines it becomes nearly impossible to eyeball everything to make sure that's true. A successor column allows one to simply filter to find the missing successors.

    Hi John,

    Excellent idea! That would be a great addition to Smartsheet features.

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    I work for a large University in the IT PMO and we are looking for a cloudbased waterfall PM tool to replace MS Project. I really like Smartsheets but the one thing that concerns me is how long I have see comments about adding basic capability like Successor and Baseline functions and do not see any responses back from SmartSheet that they are looking to add the functions. I think I have read back 4 years where folks have asked to get the Successor feature added with no response from SmartSheet. 

    Should I be concern with the support that SmartSheet provides in enhancing their tool. We are also looking at MS Project Online but it looks like it needs a large amount  administration to support it.

    This is really needed. I submitted a request probably two years ago and still nothing. I don't want to MS project for this.

    Yes you should be concerned, a lot of basic functions have not been completed for years. I've already invested time into Smartsheet and now I'm think I may have to go back to MS Project because of these issues.
