Does Smartsheet support using successor links? The Gantt chart visually presents successor links, but I don't seem to be able to view them anywhere as a column.
Hi @Anne Reynolds,
There isn't a "Successors" column tied to Dependency settings in a sheet at this time, but I highly recommend Submitting a Product Enhancement Request if this is something you would like to see added on to Smartsheet.
With the current functionality when using Predecessor values on rows, this will create a visual link between the tasks in the Gantt chart. By default, when you specify a predecessor, a Finish-to-Start relationship is established between items, such that a row's task will start after the predecessor finishes. You can change this to a Start-to-Finish relationship, if needed, to have a task finish before a designated predecessor task starts. If you click on the pencil icon in a cell within the Predecessors column on your project sheet, this will open the Edit Predecessors window where you can set the type to a different setting.
More information on these Predecessor settings can be found in the Enable Dependencies and Use Predecessors Help article from our Learning Center. If you're interested in setting up a "workback" schedule with Start-to-Finish relationships, take a look at the Project with Hard Deadline and Gantt template from the Solution Center.
I hope this helps!
Hello all! I have an automation workflow set up to record a date when a particular column changes to a specified value. Essentially I need to record a date when the "Current Stage" column changes to "Reevaluate/Schedule Final". See the workflow trigger screenshot below. I created this workflow and tested it on 11/16. It…
I use Outlook with my company. When a tagged email comes in from Smartsheets, I click on the "reply in Smartsheet" and it won't take me to any conversation box. It just opens the page, but not on the line that I need. Why is this happening? I updated this morning. Also, I get an Error message sometimes.
Hi - We number tasks in our Smartsheet grid using the format XXX.X. When we sort in descending order, the numbers are not in order. For example 200.0 appears below 001.0. Since it is in descending order 200.0 should appear before 001.0. We also want to start using four digits before the decimal point and want to know if…
