Better dependency functionality

Hi I have a monday board dedicated to schedules and the functionality of the dependency column is terrible. It only updates sporadically and sometimes incorrectly and it would be AMAZING if there was some customization. For example, the ability to exclude weekends or specific holidays so when a dependency is triggered it would be more accurate. Unfortunately, with how badly dependencies performs, it’s better not to use that column and update all of the dates manually. Can customization be integrated?

hi @EmilyG

Welcome to the community! I agree the out-of-the-box dependencies are not the best solution. Together with our partner WorkPerfect (contact @libin) we developed an app called SchedulerPro. The app support weekend skipping, 4 different dependency types, lag and loop detection. Feel freen to contact @libin for more details.

@libin where can I find out pricing information for the app once the 10-day trial has expired? Thanks!

Hi @EmilyG

If you think SchedulerPro will work for you, you can email me at libin@workperfect.io for more details :smiley:

I have the same issue. This feature makes using Monday.com for project management a challenge. I wish Monday would fix this so we don’t have to purchase an additional software. I don’t think that will happen so thanks for letting me know about the SchedulerPro app!

I agree, normally on a project schedule we can block out non work time so that due dates and timelines adjust accordingly - how do we do that here? I don’t want a dependency to push to a weekend if that is not part of our working schedule.

Also is there still no way to tie a dependency of a item to a subitem?? We do a bunch of development and some of my main tasks under a different group are actually dependent on a subitem of a different group…I cannot get this to work…can you provide guidance.
