'Mark as dependant' disappeared from task options

Hi, I am ready to build dependencies into a schedule but I don’t seem to have the option anymore?

Could you please let me know if this has been removed or if it might have to do with the type of subscription I’m working with - workspace.

Thanks a lot,


Hi @Project_Manager,

Have no fear, the feature still exists! It’s just that the way to set dependencies has changed. Instead of that menu option, click the “Dependencies” button in the task toolbar; when you do, a new row will display in the task detail pane allowing you to set task(s) that are blocking this task and/or set task(s) that this task is blocking. Check out the screenshot here:

Thanks, Phil!

I don’t see the “Dependencies” button on my task toolbar (like Barbara, I previously had this feature and it seems to have disappeared).

Any chance you know if this is a change that’s being rolled in different accounts over time?

I don’t believe so, but @Marie or @Emily_Roman , can you comment?

Hi @Darryl_Garris and @Phil_Seeman :wave:

@Darryl_Garris can you create a test task and share a screenshot of what you see? This update if fully rolled out, and providing you’re working in a Premium/Biz/Enterprise Organisation, you should definitely see this option in your task pane details toolbar as seen below!

Looking forward to your reply!

I also do not have this option, dependencies seems to have completely disappeared.

No, they’re there: click where it says “Add dependencies”.

Thanks, @Phil_Seeman !

@Marie – Looks like I’m in the same boat as @Angela_Rose : Dependencies don’t show up in the task pane details toolbar (red box) but do appear below (green box).
