Creating a Cross-Project Dependency

For general information about cross-project dependencies, see About 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, Hyperloop Bypass/Tasks).
  2. Select a task and click the Create Dependency icon Screen Shot 2022-04-21 at 9.41.28 AM.png or the Manage Dependencies option from the Actions or right-mouse click context menus option-crop.png .
  3. In the Manage Dependency dialog that appears, choose New Predecessor > In Another Project.

  1. Once you are done, click Save. The cross-project dependency shows up in the appropriate grid column and within the project Gantt. Hovering over the Gantt icon will provide the cross-project dependency task title and in parentheses the project.

  1. Clicking the grid icon will show a task "quick view" card. This card has a link to the external task so you can navigate directly between projects.
