New in Doolphy: Task dependencies!

Once again, it is release week at Doolphy. After the improvements in the configuration section and the possibility of creating project templates, this week is the turn of task dependencies.

How do Task Dependencies work in Doolphy?

Setting dependency relationships between 2 or more tasks means linking tasks to each other according to the start or end date. In Doolphy dependencies are created “End to Start”. Between task A and B, an end-to-start dependency implies that task B cannot start until task A is completed. Being able to create this kind of relationships is very important in some projects where it is essential to complete a task in order to start the next one.

Task Dependencies – Doolphy

In order to set task dependencies in Doolphy, you have to follow these steps:

  • If you’re creating a new task, you will find the option “View and set dependencies” in the new task form. In tasks that are already created you can find this option in the form to edit them.
  • Once you click on the link, a pop-up is displayed. There you can indicate the start and / or end date of the task that you’re creating or editing. Bear in mind that it makes no sense to establish dependencies between tasks that have no start or end dates ;)
  • Depending on the dates you have set, those tasks susceptible to be predecessors or successors will appear on the tables. Then you only have to add them and click on the save button. After that, you can continue editing the task.

Easy, isn’t it? With this new Doolphy release, it is possible to indicate task dependencies but we’re not stopping here. In the coming weeks, we will bring you more news. Remember that, as always, you can send us your suggestions through our contact section at us website.
