I have 2 tasks with a Finish to Start dependencies. How to I get the start date of Task B to be automatically pushed out when Task A end date is pushed out?
Hey @Anna Poppe ,
No, there is no functionality for this as far as I'm aware. The blocked task will only have its position adjusted by the auto-scheduler or manually by a user moving it directly.
I would definitely recommend playing around with the auto-scheduler- it can be really helpful to use it as a foundation of sorts for your plan's timeline which can then be adjusted manually afterwards.
You'll need to make sure your plan is configured for sequential dependencies rather than concurrent. This can be verified in the Plan Settings > Scheduling.
If sequential dependencies are enabled, Advanced Roadmaps will automatically schedule Task B after Task A. (as long as the global settings for dependencies are configured this way- you need to be an administrator to verify this)
If Tasks A and B have inherited Sprint dates and are scheduled accordingly, you will need to make sure that the auto-scheduler is set to overwrite Sprints rather than filling in empty values.
@Michael AndolfattoI've checked our settings. All set to sequential. Currently we are planning on Initative level only (without epics/stories/sprints). Initative A+B+C all linked with a "blocks" dependency. Initially all of them were auto-planned. All fine. Then I've moved Initiative A to a later start date, overlapping Initative B. Automated Planning of B+C (without A) won't change anything. B ist overlapping A. Appreciate any help, hint, comment. Regards and thanks in advance.
Hi @Raimund Antonitsch , the auto-scheduler in Advanced Roadmaps will only move issues that have estimates applied (either time or story points) which is very rarely the case for high-level issues like Initiatives.
Advanced Roadmaps really excels from the bottom-up: the start date/end date of an issue like an Initiative is dependent on the scheduling of the lowest-level (estimated) items.
