How to adjust task schedule based on dependencies?

  • 1.  How to adjust task schedule based on dependencies?

    Hello All!

     

    I would like to use CA PPM ou Open Workbench to schedule my project tasks in a similar way I do using MS-Project. When working in MS-Project as long as I have set up all the task dependencies correctly I can change the start date od the first task and the sucessors tasks will be update accordingly. The closest I got to it in CA PPM/Workbench is the autoschedule feature, but I couldn't get to apply it only to one tast and its related tasks.

     

    Anyone know a way to solve that problem?

     

    Tnak you all!

    If you have your tasks in sequence you could try the work around described in

    I had a recollection of "Autoschedule selected tasks" but do not see anything related to that in the latest documentation.

    Thank you Urmas!

     

    It's not exactly what I want but it helps.

     

    I also have been able to get a result very close to what I want using date restrictions. Instead of using the task start date I used a start date restriction and autoscheduled the project after . As long as all the activities have a restriction the only activities will be affected is the one which had an alteration in the start date restriction and the activities which are affected (dependencies). I believe it solves my problem.

     

    Thank you again!
