How can i set up a column to calculate how long it took to complete a task from the date it was assigned to date it got completed? I don't understand the dependencies in the project settings.
If you don't want to use the dependency setting in project settings, this is actually fairly easy to do with your own formulas. To find the duration, minus the Start Date from the Completed Date and this will give you the total days.
=[End Date]@row - [Start Date]@row
This formula should be entered into a Text/Number column. Here are some Help Center articles that explain this further:

Hi @Alon Shachar
If you want to find the working days between two dates, you can use the NETWORKDAYS Function!
=NETWORKDAYS([Start Date]@row, [End Date]@row)
What if the Start Date and End Data are populated with a formula? Is there a way to have a column displays the duration between the Start/End columns?
That specific formula is writing the date out as text, using quotes. In this instance, no, there isn't a way to calculate the duration.
However if the Start and End columns are date type of columns, you could use the DATE function to output a date instead of text and then we can find the duration!
=IF(Color@row = "Red", DATE(2024, 01, 10)... and so on
Here's more information: DATE Function
