For scheduling coordination, I'd like to set an dependency on a task in project B to begin the same day as project A. Has anyone successfully set this up and can share best practices on managing this configuration?
This is the way it goes
Open task and select Dependencies in task properties
Click the Browse icon next to the project field to select another project
Select your task ad define the dependency properties
Note that all dependency types are available and you can select is the external task successor or predecessor
The external task is displayed with a symbol in the Gantt chart and the bubble displays that is external.
Best practices? You tell me.
Is this restricted to Clarity Gantt or can this be used with Microsoft Project?
That is Clarity and has nothing to do whether or not you use a scheduler or which scheduler you use.
I was just going to post the image in Gantt to display how it looks.
Now I see that the last image did note get posted.
Try to remember to add that tomorrow.
What access does PM of project A should have on project B? only view access will do?
As I posted in the other thread view will allow only to view and as you you a creating something in that is visible both projects you would have to have edit project and my quess is that you also need edit project plan.
