How to use Dependencies on Gantt Chart?

Dependencies show the relationship between cards on board. They indicate when a card should begin or end in relation to other cards.

To add predecessor, Open Card Details, go to Dependencies section, and select a card. 

Some cards in the drop-down list are greyed out. If it happens, that card cannot be chosen, as it would create a circular dependency, i.e. cards would either directly or indirectly depend on each other.

To remove predecessor hover your mouse over it and click Remove.


Cards are linked through a simple Finish-To-Start Dependency, which means that the first card must be finished before the second card can start. 

If this logic is violated, a blue arrow connecting the bars turns red, prompting you to adjust the dates.

Dependencies make connections between tasks more visual and your projects – more manageable.
