Fields

1. Fields
A dependency is a relationship between two events—either projects or tasks.
 
The Predecessor (or From) and Successor (or To) fields display the projects and tasks available. Items are selected from the pull-down menu. At this time, supported Category values are Concurrent or Successor relationship types.
  • A Concurrent dependency is applicable when project or task timeframes overlap (even if just by one day). These dependencies follow a pattern of "From" an event "To" another event.
  • A Successor dependency is applicable when one project cannot start until a prior project has been completed. These dependencies have defined Predecessor and Successor events.
 
Rationale is a text field to define the reason for the dependency relationship.

Window Buttons

2. Window Buttons
The Clear Changes button resets all fields to the original values; it is only available when editing an existing dependency. The Delete button immediately removes the current dependency. This button is only available when editing an existing dependency. A confirmation window pops up:
The Apply button saves edits made in the window, and then closes it. The Cancel button reverses edits made in the window, and then closes it.
