Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Connect tasks with dependencies, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- At the very heart of managing projects in OmniPlan…is connecting tasks with dependencies.…And we're learning more about tasks…and we've already seen how dependencies look…and how they generally function.…You recall that those are those gray lines…that connect the tasks and the milestone,…one is a prerequisite for another to happen.…And as you recall, thus far we've basically connected these…in that linear fashion that is Concept board should be done…for Feedback round 1 to start and so on.…
And we've also connected tasks to tasks and milestones…in a one-to-one fashion.…So it's not been the case so far that something…has multiple prerequisites to go forward.…But we do have some other possibilities…with dependencies, so I wanted to point out…both how those work, where they manifest in the interface,…and then also from a project management point of view…how we might utilize these different options…that we have with dependencies.…So starting from the top if I select the task…that is Concept board over in the Task inspector,…
