I believe the timeline should be able to visualise task dependencies. Other project management platforms such as Asana is able to do so by linking interdependent timeline blocks with a line.
Would this be possible by linking a field in an entry to another to show dependencies? This makes managing and understanding complex timelines more doable.
Any comments appreciated!
I managed to create a timeline with dependencies using the Org Chart Block. It takes a bit of massaging to make it work right, but the end result was pretty handy. Might be worth a shot!
That’s an interesting workaround, thanks for the idea!
This would be a great addition to the timeline block, to make it a little closer to a Gantt chart.
Hi Mac, without taxing you for a lengthy reply, I’m wondering if you could elaborate how you use Org Chart Block? I’m brand new to Airtable and this dependency issue is a showstopper for me. Could you point me to anything that would show me how you did this or could you give me a quick “how to”? Any direction is appreciated. Thank you.
Sure, I just posted something over in Show and Tell: Business Process Management
Here is a shot of my actual process flow diagram:
It’s not perfect, but it beats the heck out of manually dragging and dropping a process flow.
