Dependency Constraints – Deskera PM

Managing your tasks with Deskera Project Management just became a whole lot easier. With the ability to place dependency constants on certain tasks, we can ensure that primary tasks are completed before secondary and tertiary tasks are preformed. For example, before a product is packaged, it must first have gone through polishing and quality control. By setting up these dependency constrains, we can ensure that key procedures are not missed out and avoid defects and delays.

In a few easy steps, we will show you how to set dependency constraints for your tasks in Deskera PM.

Step 1: Click on one of your projects and then on the “Project plan” tab

Step 2: Locate the “Predecessors” column and write down the number of the tasks you want completed before a particular task. Add multiple tasks by separating them with a comma.

Your constraints will be displayed in the Gantt chart on the right. You will notice arrows originating from preceding tasks and ending at the secondary or tertiary task. For example, an arrow will originate from quality control and point towards packaging. You can also set these constraints via the Gantt chart by clicking on your preceding task (QC) and dragging the arrow towards your secondary task (packaging). Your task number for QC will now appear under the Predecessors column beside the packaging task.

Ensure that your projects are on the right track with the Deskera PM dependency constraints.
