how to build Gantt with dependencies



We are R&D company developing large-scale capital equipment.

I've built a very detailed Gantt and need help with the central issue of blocking other parallel tasks.

We have many different projects on the same machine and machine time is the most valuable asset in the company. How do I block other tasks when they accrue parallel to a different task?

I need to mark somehow a task that will block (move to after finished) to a task.

    Hi @Daniel.Sorkin

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Have you explored using Dependencies and Successors?

    Also, have you explored the Premium App, Resource Management by Smartsheet?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    I am using dependencies but was curious if there's an option to mark "off-line" tasks, which don't use the assets and automatically schedule (finish to start) all activities which are "online" (on the asset itself).
