Task predecessor questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can someone help me with this?  I want to do something like a finish to finish dependency but without aligning the end dates. I want two connected tasks with different end dates, but if the first task's end date slips past the end date of the second task, I want the second tasks end date pushed out to meet it.  Is this possible?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    This is the normal behaviour of Project's Finish to Finish reletionship. The successor cannot finish before the predecessor finishes. So your task 1 will be the predecessor, Task 2 the successor.

  • Thanks for the reply. I think what I'm after may be a bit more complex.

    What happens when I set up the finish to finish is that task 2's end date changes to task 1's end date. I want this to happen only when task 1's end date, which is currently before task 2's end date, moves to beyond what task 2's end date currently is.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Are you really using MS Project? What you claim here is not true. With a FF dependency from T1 to T2, if T1's finish is earlier , it DOES NOT influence T2's finisjh.
