^^^^ Yes, as a project manager, I need to be able to type in only a few things to automatically build a project timeline: Task Name, duration, dependency.
This would allow one to auto-build a schedule with the start date of the task being the end date of the ‘dependent on’ task and the end date being calculated automatically using the duration of the task.
The idea being, if the end date of a predecessor moves, the start date of the dependent task automatically moves based on the new end date of the predecessor. also, the end date of the dependent task automatically gets updated (calculated: end date = start date + duration).
Otherwise, when a predecessor task moves out, each person responsible for ‘dependent on’ tasks must move their start dates manually…
This is a reallllly big deal for those of us who are used to using MS Project and is a key reason I still don’t use Asana for my project management unless forced to do so… Please confirm if my understanding is right - that there is no ability to auto schedule based on predecessor end date and duration.
