How do I manage plan-level dependencies?
This article explains how to build & view dependencies between plans. This is a visual link flag that shows on the Portfolios page, with the Gantt chart showing. The plans themselves do not get their dates shifted nor other details changed.
From the child/dependent plan, open the contextual menu. Select Dependencies.
If any other dependencies exist for this plan, they will show. Click the Add Dependency button to create a new depency/link between plans.
Choose Dependency Options
- The current plan name shows.
- Select the Depends On plan.
- Select Link Type. Options include: Finish-to-Start, Start-to-Start, Finish-to-Finish, and Start-to-Finish.
- Click the Add button to see it listed. You may add additional dependencies as needed.
Dependencies Show on Gantt Chart
Show the Gantt. The plans' gantt bars will have a line with an arrow to signify which plan is dependent on which, and the link type.
