Displaying Actual Start/Actual Finish


Hi I have a chain of dependent tasks that all start on the same day, but because they are dependent, they waterfall out in the gantt. Is there a way to display the actual task start and finish dates in a column?

    Hi @Andrew Manto

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you have a number of tasks set up like this, each dependent on the task above:

    But instead, you want them to still be dependent, but start on the same day (instead of when the other task ends). If so, you can indicate that you want the dependency to be a Start - to - Start type of dependency by adding SS after the Predecessor number, like so: 1SS

    Here's an article that you may find useful as you set up your project: Change the Attributes for a Predecessor Relationship
