Assume I have just two items and item 2 is dependent on item 1’s completion. How can I have the start and end date for item 2 automatically adjust (forward or backward) based on changes made to the end date for item 1?
I submitted this same question using the online help form twice and received two answers. The first informed me it wasn’t possible for adjusting a date earlier in time; the second second informed me it was possible but he’d need to reply to me “by noon.” That was almost three days ago and I haven’t heard back.
I know how to use a dependency automation to adjust the start date of item 2 if the end date for item 1 is extended; however, I can’t get items 2’s start date to adjust earlier in time when item 1’s end date is adjusted to an earlier date.
I am open to complex work-arounds as long as once set up, I can reply on it to update items’ start and end dates based on the precedent item. Has anyone cracked this egg?
