Hi,

I work in a construction company and would love to export pdf gantt files without showing the predeccesors. It looks like a mess but it is only needed data wise for connections but not really in the export.


Thank you in advance.

    As a quick workaround, you can go to Project Settings and temporarily turn off dependencies while you export the files, then re-enable after you are done. If your predecessor and duration columns are already named with the default names, Smartsheet will ask you if you want to set those as your relevant columns, and everything should go back to working. Otherwise it will prompt you for the names of those relevant columns within your current sheet.

    If you wanted to do this without risking messing up your active working timeline, you can save a copy of the sheet and turn off dependencies there, then delete the copy-of-sheet after you export your pdfs.

    I was hoping there would be a different way but thank you. I will just make a copy and play with the dependencies.
