Creating Cross-Project Dependencies

For general information about cross-project dependencies, see About Cross-Project Dependencies.

Note: Projects integrated with a ProjectPlace workspace are blocked from having cross-project dependencies. 

The process for creating cross-project dependencies is the same as for intra-project dependencies:

  1. Navigate to the Tasks section of a project (for example, Hyperspace Bypass/Tasks).
  2. Select a task and click the Create Dependency icon dependency_icon.png
  3. In the Manage Dependency dialog that appears, choose New Predecessor > In Another Project.


  1. Search for the project, choose the task.



  1. Click OK.

The selected task appears in the Precedesors list. You can adjust the dependency type and lag/lead time.


  1. Once you are done, click Save.


  1. The external task links are indicated by a task "quick view" card. This card has link to the external task so you can navigate directly between projects.

Note that the external project will appear on the Project-Predecessors page of the originating project.
