New Blog Post! Using Predecessors to Forecast a Project Timeline


Employee Advisor

Make forecasting and managing projects easier with predecessors.

Do you have several tasks within a project that you need to have organized in a specific or sequential order? Did you know that adding a predecessor to a task can help in projecting the project timeline and estimate when users need to be available to work on the assigned tasks?

A predecessor is the task another task (called a successor or dependent task) depends on. When a predecessor relationship is added to a task in Workfront, as long as the task constraint of the dependent task is set to As Soon As Possible, the project timeline automatically recalculates, so you can quickly move forward in planning the project.

You can automatically create predecessor relationships on several, selected tasks in Workfront-rather than manually creating one on each task-using the chaining tasks feature. Click into the full blog post here learn more about about predecessors and dependency types and to view examples of how predecessors can be used!
