We started our App with a Project Management Template and it came with a Predecessor field. Since then, we've created multiple tables from scratch. I want to create a Predecessor field in one of my other tables and I can't figure out how to do it. My goal is to be able to search for multiple records within that same table and pull them into one record, in other words, I need to show dependencies. 

Can someone help walk me through creating this field?

Thank you!

This is a pretty tricky one! In order to see the option to create a predecessor field, your table must have a work date field.

Thank you! I feel very stupid.. I didn't even see that Predecessor was an option for a type.
