Hello, I just set up dependencies on my timeline, but when I move one of the tasks to a future date, the tasks dependent on that tasks do not automatically update their due dates or place on the timeline. Am I doing something wrong or is there not a way to do this.
Asana is just in the process of rolling out an enhancement where dependent dates will auto-shift if their dates conflict (overlap) with the changed date on the precedent task you updated. They actually had rolled out that feature but there was an issue with it, so they’ve temporarily rolled it back and are fixing the issue. You can read more here:
(Also FYI, if you’d prefer to have all dependent tasks auto-shift, as opposed to just those which are in date conflict, that capability is available in my Flowsana integration. )
Yes, it works provided that [a] you’re moving the antecedent task such that it ends up overlapping with its dependent task, [b] you perform that move in the timeline view, and [c] you have “Prevent dependency conflicts” enabled for that project (it’s enabled by default).
