    I have a requirement that I have to submit some documents 15 calendar days prior to an event that will happen on the 30th day of every month.

    What is the proper way to link…etc these tasks…

    Generate Documents
    Submit Documents
    Convene Document Review

    I know I can use lags but didn’t know how to apply the calendar to account for the calendar days requirement. Do I set up a calendar that shows all days as working and apply this????

    Thanks so much for the help.

    Lags use successor task calendar, so in your case the calendar of the “Event on 30th” will determine the duration of your lag.

    If this event uses a Standard calendar, then your lag will be 15 days and if it is on a 7-day calendar, your lag will be 21 days.

    I’d assign “As Late As Possible” constraint to the tasks, Generate Documents, Submit Documents & Convene Document Review. The logic will be as shown below assuming you are using Standard calendar

  • “Generate Documents” with FS link to “Submit Documents”
  • “Submit Documents” with FS link to “Convene Document Review”
  • “Convene Document Review” with FS+15 link to “Event on 30th”
