I need some help on some automation I’m doing here.
I have 2 tasks, A and B who is dependent on A to finish.
I created an automation on one section to as I move task A, it auto mark as done or complete.
Problem is, task B is on another section and it’s getting auto marked as done/complete. I have no rule to set dependencies like this.
Is this an expected behaviour? If so, how to avoid that.
Welcome to the Forum!
I have tried to reproduce the issue, but I am unable to do so.
Attached you can see the only one rule I created to get the behaviour in the GIF → when Task A moves to Complete → Complete the task → Dependency on Task B is removed → Task B is still open.
Is that what you are trying to achieve?
- If yes, are you also using just this one rule?
- If not, can you please share the Sections you have created and the respective rules in the project?
I think I didn’t send a correct note on my issue.
It’s not completing the task but I have a Task status field that changes to DONE along with the rule.
The behaviour is changing the task status for the linked tasks, I’ve grabbed a screenshot for that.
So the Task A change status to done, and suddenly Task B too.
The expected was not to change any task status or the field on the downward dependent streams.
Please take a look below:
Thanks for the quick reply.
No problem and thanks for the additional information!
That looks to me like unexpected behaviour
I’ve recreated the same rule as yours and custom fields and I still have not managed to reproduce it. See below. I also tested in Chrome, Firefox and Safari and I cannot say is anything browser-related.
- Have you tried to clean your browser cache completely and try again?
- That’s the only rule you have set right?
- Also, can you try to test the rule with a new task (both the completed and the dependent) or even a new project?
@Ari_cmn Can you confirm that there is no other rules set in the project?
Thanks again, and yes, I just found a trigger for closing unblocked tasks on a linked project .
Thanks for helping out, it seems I’ll need to clean up some rules on some projects.
Glad you found out @Ari_cmn!
