What are Dependencies?

A dependency is a relationship between two things i.e. two tasks, two activities, two projects. This relationship must be closely managed as often changes in one will directly impact the other. 


Dependencies Status

This section is where the user can add and manage the dependencies.

By using the dropdown field, the user can select the most appropriate overall status for the dependencies and provide any associated commentary. This information can be updated in real-time.


Adding Dependencies

Dependencies can be added to the project table via Actions > Add.

Dependencies

Dependency information can be entered using the simple form containing dropdowns, text, date and user picker fields.

Dependencies Form

Anyone added as an Owner will receive a Verto notification and can set-up their own reminders for completion. 


VertoSense

Users can create and view connections within and across projects or activities using the VertoSense hashtag function #.  This function appears in all free text fields.  From within a free text box, click # to see all of the sections of the current project or activity, as well as the files area, team members and other projects or activities. These connections can then be viewed via a Network Map.


Updating Dependencies

Click on Edit against the individual dependency to amend the information in the form.

The Updates area at the bottom of the form can also be used to record regular progress updates.  Click Actions > Add to record a new update.


Remember

  • Owners must be added to the Project Team, otherwise they will not have permission to access the project or activity. 
  • The layout of the project table can be changed to view the data in the Edit All view using Actions > Layout.
