Dependencies - more options

It would be very useful if there would be dependencies like End-End or Start-Start, not only End-Start.

        Why oh why would any credible company design a new Gantt solution and not include a fundamental requirement like F-F or S-S!!!!! Who are these users running projects that only require E-S dependencies? And no feedback on this page from teamgantt? Wow, I can't believe I just wasted two hours setting up this thing to bin it half way through the chart. Very poor teamgantt!

        Re Mikes comment, Type: Start-Start, Start-Finish, Finish-Start, Finish-Finish - absolutely critical for me, I have people in teams working on the same thing together, and adding them both to the same 'task' line is clunky for how we work - if I could connect both tasks and drag multiple connected lines around it would be awesome

        I absolutely agree. Im a long time creator of Gantt charts and think TeamGantt is a great product. The only thing letting it down is SS, FF and FS -/+ xxd or SS -/+ xxd.

        @TeamGantt team is this feature in the backlog? If so, how soon is it scheduled to be released?

        How is it possible to have a PM software that doesn't offer the basic types of dependencies, like: End-end and start-start

        These comments go back to 2011.... Has anyone had any response from teamgantt at all?

        Definitely need to expand this area of functionality. Same day finish-start dependencies and overlapping milestones. Lack of this is starting to make the usefulness of the product diminish as I get better at planning with it!

      • AD commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree with all the feedback here. These dependency types and establish lag is critical to creating and informing a complete and accurate schedule. Definitely a weak point.

        Need to chime in here and request this feature too, would be very useful

      • Mike commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Dependency type and dependency lag are basic features. The product needs this to be a serious planning tool. I can't use this tool without it.

        Type: Start-Start, Start-Finish, Finish-Start, Finish-Finish
        Lag: Duration that a dependent task must lag after dependency is met. Default is 0. Should allow positive or negative lag.

        This would be awesome! +1! But it looks like it's been a very long time since this was suggested

      • Mischa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Anybody out there? Please implement the common PM dependencies as well as a lag function

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with all the comments below. This is the biggest hole I see with the TG product. All the different dependency options are critical, along with multiple dependencies assigned to a task, and the ability to assign float.

        The functionality of this software is the very best that I have seen (drag and drop), but these items being missing makes the tool only marginally effective. The lack of these features will keep a lot of professional PMs from using this tool- which is a shame.

        Totally agree this should be extended as soon as possible. Personally I need to be able to state that task A must be completed x days before task B is completed.

      • Paul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with all the comments. I don't often use the other types of dependencies, but they are helpful to have. Having some of the other features people have mentioned would also be helpful, but there are workarounds for those.

      • Roland Braun commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I totally agree with Suzanne and Ryan. SS, FF, SF, FS with buffer either in absolute values (e. g. days) or percentage. For example a task can not start before the other one has 50% progressed. Or two days before one task is finished the other one must start.
        Also multiple constraints are important because more than one task can depend on one other.
