Within Teamwork, you can make a task in one project dependent on a task in a different project.
When creating or editing a task in one project, go to the dependencies tab.
Click the Select Tasks button, and in the predecessors modal, you will see a dropdown in the top left where you can select the project you want to select a task from.
On the left hand side, select the relevant task list, and you will then be able to select which task(s) you want to create the dependency with.
Once the task has been selected, you will see it listed in the dependencies tab of the original task. Here, you can set the kind of dependency you want:
- Start - The selected task must be completed before the current task can start
- Be completed - The selected task must be completed before the current task can be completed
Click on the start / be completed link to switch between them.
Once the dependency has been created, you will see a red circle beside the task you have set the dependency on, preventing completion.
If you hover over this icon, you will see details of the existing dependency stopping it from being completed.
Removing a dependency
To remove a dependency from a task, go to the dependencies tab. To the right of the selected task, click the x to remove the dependency.
