Critical Task & Driving Task

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

Hello Users, I was trying to highlight critical task names in my plan on Smartsheet but I could not, I can see it only in Gantt view but task name are not getting highlighted in Red like in Microsoft project where we can highlight critical task name in red along with Gantt chart see the driving task in MS project we have Inspect function where we can identify predecessor task name & its ID but here we have to go in Gantt & activate driving path then we can see an bold arrow which defines driving path, its little bit confusing if there are multiple predecessors.

3. in Microsoft project we can see predecessor task details in Task form when we roll down from task to task. is this function available in Smartsheet also so we can see multiple predecessor at once instead of viewing complex Gantt arrows? am I missing something?

    I attempted to highlight critical task names through conditional formatting, but it's not currently possible. Neither are the functionalities you described in points 2 and 3.

    When you have a moment, submit a Product Enhancement Request to let our Product team know that you'd like to have this functionality in Smartsheet. 

    I hope this helped!
