Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing tasks and task links, part of Microsoft Project 2010 Essential Training.
- Sometimes it's hard to see…which tasks are linked in your schedule.…The good news, Project offers features…that can make your schedule easier to read.…Well, first of all, you can look at task values…without the time scale.…You can use the table on the left side of the Gantt chart.…So let me drag the vertical divider over the right,…so I can see more columns.…I have the entry table displayed,…and that table has the predecessors column in it.…When you look and see a number…that represents the task ID for…the predecessor to a particular task.…
If you see several numbers separated by commas,…that means the task has several predecessors to it.…I'm going to scroll down a little bit further.…Here is a task that has a link that has a delay,…so you can see all the information…about your tasks links in the predecessor's column.…Now let me drag the vertical divider back over,…so I have more of the time scale in view,…and I'm going to head back up to the top of the project.…The other thing that can sometimes help with your link lines…
