Dependencies

Wouldn’t it be lovely to see those fine lines on the timeline, linking one card to another. Well, it’s becoming possible now with Dependencies!

Add dependencies

Here are some guidelines on how to set dependencies in Planyway.

Planyway Dependencies

To make a card dependent on any other card or cards, open its editing dialogue and click on the Add dependency icon on the top.

Planyway Add Dependency

A new dependency will be added to the card. It’s time to choose cards that will come after or before this one. To add a dependent card, start typing its name or choose from the drop-down list. And then click on the dependency type to change it:

  • Choose a dependency type Waiting on to add a preceding card.
  • Choose a dependency type Blocking to add a following card.

To add another dependency, repeat the above steps.

In case you need to check any details of the linked card, click on its name in the dependency field. You’ll be instantly redirected to its editing dialogue.

Dependencies can be added not only to cards but to milestones too!

If you see a connecting line highlighted in red, that’s a sign that dates for dependent cards overlap and the blocking card missed the deadline.
