Dependencies in Todoist
You've set up a Gantt chart of your Todoist project using Ganttify and visualized all the ongoing tasks and events.
One of the power features of a Gantt chart is the ability to set dependencies between tasks so one due date automatically gets postponed of a predecessor is delayed. It can quickly become a tedious job to manually manage all these task due dates, especially when you're working with a team on larger projects.
In Ganttify, you can set dependencies between the time blocks and due dates of your Todoist tasks to make sure everything stays on track, automatically. Here's a short instruction video about how this feature works:
Add dependencies to Todoist tasks
When you open up a Todoist project in Ganttify, you see the 'due dates' and 'time blocks' in your Gantt chart. Each of these rows represents a task from your project. With the dependencies feature, you can simply right-click on each of these items and choose 'Add dependency' from the context menu.
Once you set up your dependencies, you can easily update your Todoist project schedule by dragging a time block or due date left or right in the Gantt chart. If a task gets delayed by moving it in Ganttify, the dependent tasks will automatically reschedule, all the new dates will directly be synchronized to Todoist on all your devices.
Removing dependencies from Todoist tasks
If you need to remove a dependency, you can easily do that as well. All you have to do, like most things in Ganttify, is use the right-mouse click. Right-click on the dependency line you wish to remove and left-click on "Remove dependency" from the context menu.
Now, you have learned the basics of creating and removing dependencies in Ganttify for Todoist.
