I am currently working on a project involving a workflow board that represents the processes of our construction projects. The dependencies between tasks are of utmost importance, but I’m encountering some challenges with the column dedicated to dependencies and how they are being managed. The activities that I should have been able to automate were:
- Activity A, which needs to be completed entirely before starting activity B.
- Activity A, which don’t need to be completed entirely before starting activity B. But activity B should begin 5 days after activity A. Or activity B should be completed at the same time as activity A.
- Activity A, which needs to be completed entirely 5 days before starting activity B.
The “strict” dependency doesn’t work well for me because, for example, when I set up an activity as described in case 2 above, the “5 days” restriction doesn’t remain when I push this activity on the Gantt chart (this is crucial for updating projected and achieved dates directly on Gantt chart). Are there any potential automated solutions that could provide assistance in this context?
