    Hello,

    Cleaning Room 1
    – Step one (A)
    – Step two (B)
    – Meets Cleanliness Standards (C) [Gline #FF]
    Clearance Testing (D)
    – Wipe Samples (E)
    – Air Sampling (F)
    – Passes Clearance Testing (G)

    I would like to link tasks such that:
    – C completes when G completes (link C to G line number with FF after it I think)
    – A & B complete when C completes
    – but their start dates are not adjusted by the links
    – and the duration (days) adjust to reflect the start and finish dates
    I tried linking the completion of A & B with completion of C but it adjusts the start date to match the days for those tasks even though the days are listed as “days?”.

    Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards,

    Chris

    Sorry Chris, hard to follow the issue. If you are wanting the system to adjust the duration based on predecessors / successors, Project doesn’t do that. Project will only move the task. If that’s not the case, please provide additional details.

    Thank you for the response Larry.

    I would like to link Task B so that the following occurs:
    Task B to Start when Task A completes
    Task B to Finish when Task C completes

    If I have to manually adjust the days I can live with that but at least the dates will be correct.

    Regards,

    Chris

    As you probably know by now it won’t work. A task start date is determined by the predecessor that causes the latest start date.
