Creating Dependencies

Creating Dependencies

You can create a dependency in the following ways:

  1. Click on the dot next to the taskbar and drag&drop it on the target task, or drop to the dependency dot of the target task. When you hover over a dependency dot or a taskbar of the target task, both dot and half of a taskbar pulsate. 

  2. Click the dot that appears next to the taskbar when you hover over the task with the mouse.

  3. Create dependencies directly on a Jira issue page.
