Create task dependency links

It’s time to learn how to create links between tasks and after that, to think about when to link them.

If you move a task or insert a new task, Project automatically links it in the same way as the tasks around it.

By getting all of your tasks in order first, you make sure that the link you like stays just the way you want it.

Linking Project tasks

create an fs dependency
Create an FS dependency

After you’ve identified two tasks that will be dependent on each other, identify one task as the predecessor.

Then select the predecessor task by clicking its ID number.

Next, press the CTRL key and select the task that will be the successor of the task that you have already selected.

Then, click Link Tasks on the Standard toolbar.

Linking Project tasks

create an fs dependency3
Create an FS dependency

After you’ve identified two tasks that will be dependent on each other, identify one task as the predecessor.

Then select the predecessor task by clicking its ID number.

If you need to remove a dependency link:

  • Select the linked tasks. The order of selection does not matter.
  • Click Unlink on the Standard toolbar.

Linking Project tasks

type dependencies in the predecessors column
Type dependencies in the Predecessors column

What if you need to set dependencies between tasks that are quite far apart in the Project plan?

Project provides a simple solution, as shown in Figure 1:

You can create dependency links by typing directly in the Predecessors column.

Linking Project tasks

type dependencies in the predecessors column5
Type dependencies in the Predecessors column

What if you need to set dependencies between tasks that are quite far apart in the Project plan?

First, note the predecessor task’s ID number. Then, scroll to the task that will become its successor.

In the Predecessors field of the successor task, type the predecessor task’s ID number and the appropriate dependency abbreviation: SS, FF, FS, or SF.

Linking Project tasks

type dependencies in the predecessors column6
Type dependencies in the Predecessors column

What if you need to set dependencies between tasks that are quite far apart in the Project plan?

To remove a dependency link from the Predecessors column, select the ID number of the predecessor task, and then press the DELETE key.
