I have a Projects table and a Tasks table. Is it possible to add predecessor tasks across multiple Projects (parent records) in my application, so that the end date of the predecessor in one project becomes the start date of the successor in another project?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there Juan-they way the predecessor field works is that it will allow you to note that another record related to the same master record is a predecessor of that record you are on. Since a detail record can only have one master record, there is not a way to set up a task from another project as a predecessor. Sorry about that!

Katie - i want to make sure I understand - does this mean that there's no functionality to, for example, require the predecessor to be completed before the successor can be started?

Thanks!
