    hi,

    Can someone pls explain how can i add dependency type between two activities. By dependency type here i mean like start to start, finish to finish, start to finish and finish to start.

    Now i am able to add only one type of relationship type (finish to start).





    Thanks,
    Rupendra

    Hi Rupendra,

    Can you be more clear when you say Start to Start and Finish to Finish dependencies, are you talking about children task to have that kind of dependencies or Parent / Child? Also can you be more clear in what scenario you will have a Start to Finish dependency?

    Regards

    hi Ron,

    Lets say We have Three different Tasks. T1, T2 & T3.

    Now, T2 can be started only if T1 has started. so here i want to draw start to start relationship from T1 to T2. Relationship arrow should start from the beginning of T1 in the ganttview and end at beginning of T2. 

    And T3 can be started only when T2 is finished. So in this case it will be finish to start relationship between T2 and T3. So In the Ganttview, relationship arrow will begin from end of T2 and will Finish at the beginning of T3.






    Thanks

    Hi Rupendra,

    The first scenario that you described, the T1 to T2, from my perspective, will be a parent / child relation since T2 depends on T1 to start and that means it is a child of T1, so the lines should go from the finish of T1 to the start of T2, that doesn't mean that T1 needs to finish for T2 to start, only that T2 depends on T1... Again that is how I see it... Maybe the guys from telerik have a better way to represent this.

    The second scenario that you described, the T3 and T2, I think is the standard scenario, the scenarios that I was asking for were a Finish to Finish or Start to Finish scenarios... The one that you described is a Finish to Start (T2 needs to be completed before T3 can start)

    You might be able to accomplish these two scenarios by creating a dependency on the Progress, and allowing entering a start date information only when the Progress % is more than 0, or if you need the task to be completed, then by checking that the Progress % is 100% before allowing the user to enter it... You can do this by checking the Progress % in the TASKEDITING event of the GranttView

    Hope this helps
