Predecessor Lag Question


Community Advisor

Hi folks! Need help figuring out a task's predecessor lag for a template. I have the need to have a task due on the 5th working day (not 5th day, in case that falls on a weekend) of the following calendar month from the task before it. For example, if the task A is due today, 3.08, I need the next task to be due Friday, 4.07. I'm sure it's something I can accomplish with predecessor lags? This is outside of my predecessor knowledge!

Hi @Madalyn_Destafney 

+5d would give you the 5 workings days, predecessors should ignore non-working days (per the schedule attached to the project or the user depending on which you have set to use).

But I don't believe there's any way to tell Workfront to set it to 5 days after another certain date that's not in the task list, such as beginning of next month.
