projects with simultaneous/concurrent tasks

Hi,

How do you track dependencies and predecessors for tasks that are happening simultaneously rather than in a linear fashion? This isn't every task but some can be accomplished at the same time. I'm struggling with how these should be displayed for a project.


Thanks!!

    Hi @rebcesarz

    What I would personally do is set up a "SS" relationship between these rows... a "start - to - start" relationship, so that both tasks have the same Start Date. Then you can use the one with the later finish date as the one to base the following tasks on for your linear path.

    Here's more information on the types of relationships you can build, see the bottom of the article: Enable Dependencies and Use Predecessors

    Cheers!
