Dependency dates are not correctly calculated

Post by gambe » Tue Mar 16, 2021 10:27 am

I really hope that;

1. Company holiday calendar implementation:
My company has own calendar and some Saturdays are not Off-day. I am really hoping ToDoList refers the text file which contains Company holidays.

2. Duration for each task implementation:
Especially for the routine tasks, I am really hoping to have Duration or each task. If I set 5days for Task1-Duration and if I set Monday for Start date then End date is Auto-set to Friday.

2. Duration for each task implementation:
This is handled by the 'Time Estimate' field, together with the following preference:

Code: Select all

Tasks > Attribute Calculations > Keep a task's time estimate synchronised with its start and due dates (and vice versa)

Thank you very much for your reply.
I tried a preference and what had was below.

1. I created 5 tasks.
2. I added dependencies.
3. I put duration.
4. I set a start day for 1st task.
5. End date for 1st task was auto-set -> OK.
6. Start date for 2nd task was auto-set -> OK.
7. But date for following tasks were not auto-set -> NG.
8. I changed duration for 1st task.
9&10. End date for 1st task and Start date for 2nd task were auto-updated -> OK.

Can you attach the tasklist referenced in your post together with a copy of your preferences (ToDoList.ini) please.

Many thx, I can confirm that there is a bug that prevents the dependency calculations being propagated.

Wow! Finally figured out how to activate this in preferences. I was wondering if there was something like this. Beautiful! Bug fix greatly appreciated Dan.
