Explore the Critical Path Engine

It is important to create dependencies or relationships between SmartTasks, so that at the start or completion of one SmartTask, the next SmartTask in that series may begin. This is the foundation of identifying the Critical Path, which determines the timeline and minimum number of days required to complete a project.

  1. Open your new project.
  2. In the View section of the left navigational panel, select the Critical Path icon from the menu.

  3. Click on one of the SmartTasks in the “SmartTasks without dependencies” section at the bottom and drag it to the area marked “Drag 1st task here”.

  4. Then, drag another SmartTask without dependencies to the area marked “Drag second task here”.

This creates the Critical Path. You can continue to stitch together dependencies from here.

  1. Click Save to save your dependencies.

This prompts a message asking if you’d like to save dependencies and update task dates, in addition to the option of sending date change notifications. Select YES or  NO, then ON or OFF, and Save.

NOTE: SmartTask dependencies be accessed and edited via Gantt and List views as well.
