I often set up entire projects at the start of the project, and don’t need to add additional tasks. I would really love if a later, dependent task’s due date could be automatically generated (based on a pre-defined timeline) once a previous task is marked complete. Right now, I have to change the due dates every time a prior task is complete.
Here’s what this would like like…
Task 1 - due Monday
Task 2 - (dependent on completion of Task 1) - due date is 5 days after Task 1 is marked complete. I would set the “due 5 days after Task 1 completed” in the due date area for Task 2, but then I wouldn’t have to revisit this…the project would just roll forward, and due dates would adjust accordingly.
There’s already a feature to set recurring tasks “periodically” based on the number of days AFTER the task is marked complete, so the functionality is there for this type of conditional logic.
I just upgraded to dependencies. It is somewhat useful…not sure if it’s worth the upgrade at this point. I will keep it for a while and try it out, but this feature would eliminate the doubt about value/worth.
