"Shift selected items by days" incompatible with dependencies

Hi there :v:

I’m trying to duplicate large (50+ items) groups with a lot of dependencies, then shift the new group’s entire timeline to a later or earlier starting date.

When I select all in the group and shift selected items by x days, the dates do not shift equally for all items. I’m assuming this is because the dates are automatically changing one by one down the column, which increases the date gap between dependency items.

It seems to work okay if I select only items without dependencies, but this is not a viable solution for the volume of items I need to duplicate and shift.

Forgive me if I’m explaining this badly, or if there’s a solution I don’t know about - I am new to Monday and trying to work out if it will be viable for us. This issue, and the already discussed problem regarding duplicated group dependencies Dependencies in groups are duplicated absolut and not relative are deal breakers for us :confused:

I’d really appreciate any advice anyone can offer.

Hi @k0akuma! Thanks for explaining your workflow :slight_smile:

Once you’ve duplicated the groups and you have your dependencies set how you want them, would you be able to toggle off the dependency automation(s) in order to shift your dates forward?

Then you should be able to toggle the automation(s) back on in order to adjust your dates accordingly moving forward. Can you give that a try and let us know how it works for you?
