Create additional dependency column to facilitate auto roll-up to parent

I created a new column "Effort". I want the "Effort" rolled up to the parent. That is not happening.


One of the FAQ states that column must be a dependency column. However, I can only see "Predecessors" and "Duration", when I go to <Project Settings/Dependencies Settings>


One way is to add a formula in the parent cell is, to sum-up everything under it. I hate to go this route as it is very manual, and I might end up messing it if I insert new rows. 


Any ideas??
