Automation With Dependencies - Problem/Question

Hi there!
I have a task item that has a couple of tasks that are all in its dependancies column.
I want to do an automation that when all the item’s dependancies are DONE the item will also be set to done automaticallyy. I couldn’t find the right automation for that, I found a similar one for subitems but it doesn’t apply to dependancies.
can it be done?
Thanks for any help! :smiley:

Hi @assafeitan - while there is an automation that will do something similar, I believe this is not quite what you are looking for. This is not accumulative and will trigger a change to all dependent items.


It helped! Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

Hello @assafeitan! Wondering if you can kindly share more about your Dependencies setup? You mention that you “have a task item that has a couple of tasks that are all in its dependancies column”. Can you kindly share how you set this up, to have multiple tasks in the Dependent On column? I can only seem to add one task to this column. Which doesn’t really make sense… as a task could be (and often is!) dependent on more than one other task. I haven’t figured out how to do this myself. Thank you.

Hi @synaesthete ,
it should let you choose multiple tasks in the dependent column.
Did you add the dependent column that they offer when clicking on the " + " button of a new column ?
I"l add a picture of how it should look like.

As you can see you can mark the relevant tasks that you want to choose as dependent to the task you are on - by clicking on the box of each task.
Hopes it helped! :smiley:
