Looks like there was a thread on this https://community.smartsheet.com/discussion/7262/forced-dates-when-dependency-is-enabled to disable auto-update of start dates when using the predecessor feature.. is this implemented?

    Hi @mc12

    If you're setting a Predecessor for a row, then the dates of that row are auto-updated based on that predecessor, configured by if you've set this as a FF, FS, SF, or SS type of relationship.

    You can add Lag or Lead time to the row if you need buffer days between when a task ends and when the dependent task begins. (See: Work with Duration and Predecessors)

    Cheers,

    Genevieve
