Set Predecessors in a Schedule

OBJECTIVE

To set Predecessors in a Schedule in ConstructionOnline.

BACKGROUND

Schedule tasks can be ordered using Predecessors. Predecessor relationships will automatically update the schedule any time a predecessor task is changed or updated. For example, if a predecessor task is delayed, any following tasks linked to that predecessor will automatically shift to later dates to reflect the delay.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • A Schedule Task can have multiple Predecessors
  • A Schedule Group cannot be set as a Predecessor
  • A Predecessor must have an end date before the linked Task’s start date

STEPS TO SET PREDECESSORS IN A SCHEDULE

  1. Navigate to the desired Project via the Left Sidebar
  2. Select the Calendars & Schedules tab
  3. Choose the Scheduling category
  4. Locate the Task you wish to enter a Predecessor for
  5. Enter the Predecessor's Task Number in the Predecessors column
    1. Changes are automatically saved
  • Note: The Predecessor column will automatically add “fs” after the Task Number – this means Finish-Start, and that the preceding task must be finished before the second can start.
