Why Doolphy Is Different?As CEO of Doolphy and entrepreneur, I usually have to present our company to start-up specialists, investors and other entrepreneurs in many meetings and forums. I have learnt that there is a recurring question that is of fundamental importance when defending your project: How is your company different to all the other companies that work in your field?

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.
