Waiting for dependency icon in task and Board card

#1

It would be awesome to have a dependency icon on task row in the list view or board card. This would give a visual que that a task is waiting on something else without the need to open it up. Great for project review meetings and in conjunction with the new custom fields.
Eg: I can have a status custom field column in list view and if the status is “on hold” and there is a dependency icon, i know that there is a blockage somewhere else immediately.


Dependency icon for tasks/subtasks
#2

Agree this is needed and was just about to post a topic for this. Currently we have to drill into each task to see if a task is waiting on another task to be complete. We need a visual on the main tasks list or board depending which you are using.


#3

I believe we need the option to be able to filter out waiting-on task’s, why do i need to see a task i can’t work on?


#4

It’s more a management perspective in to seeing blockages and holdups. Filtering would be awesome too in an execution perspective.
But in general seeing what’s dependent on something else from a birds eye view of things would be awesome without having to drill down on individual tasks


#5

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this with a custom field and some sort of automation. IE Custom Field STATUS: Ready / Waiting
If something is dependent on an unfinished task, the status is waiting, as soon as it is marked as complete. The tasks waiting are switched from ‘Waiting’ to ‘Ready’.


#6

It would be great for there to be a little yellow dot or something on tasks that have dependencies set for them. Currently you have to click into a task/subtask to see if it is dependent on something. It will help people looking at a project quickly understand why some things are getting held up.
