I don’t know that I can tell you a fool proof means of doing what you want. I’ve never had the need to set up a schedule in this manner. However, here’s a couple suggestions.
* Add the time value to the date displays. What you want to see is the Start/Finish fields also showing the time value. This will help you understand what IS happening and why successors start on the same day. For example, Task 1 may finish on Monday at 4:30 PM and Task 2 starts on Monday at 4:31 PM but only applies 30 minutes of work on Monday.
* By default, the predecessor/successor Lag relationship is 0 days, or immediately. Try adding a Lag value of 1 day on the successor relationships. This should move the successor task start date out to the next day. I haven’t had the need to do this, so it’s only a suggestion. Experiment to see if this works.

Hope that helps.
