Links between tasks

Post by Monte Carlo » Thu Sep 01, 2016 10:22 am

In my RiskyProject Gantt charts some links between tasks are shown in blue, some in red, and some in green. Is any significance in this?

In RiskyProject color of a line, representing a link between task cannot be customized. There are three colors available:

- blue color - regular link between tasks (Start-Start, Finish-Finish, Start-Finish, or Finish-Start)

- red color - represents scheduling conflict. For example, if link is Finish-Start, bit successors starts before predecessor ends

- green color - branching. Branching is not a regular link. Branching is defined in Branching tab of task information dialog. When you define probabilistic or conditional branching, only one branch will be executed on each Monte Carlo iteration. Because branching behaves differently than regular link, RiskyProject depicts links using different (green) color. Also icon next to task name for branching is different and includes small green arrow.

In Microsoft Project links between tasks are show in red if they are on the critical path. Does it work the same way in RiskyProject?

RiskyProject project does not show critical tasks. It does not calculate critical path. We are still working on it and it will be ready in next version of RiskyProject.
