Reschedule Dependencies

With this ClickApp turned on, ClickUp will automatically change all tasks' dates (both start and due dates) that are dependent on (waiting on) a task, when the blocking task's due date is pushed back to a later date.

Reschedule Dependencies

Workspace admins and the owner can enable or disable the Reschedule Dependencies ClickApp at any time from the Workspace settings menu. You can customize which Spaces have the ClickApp enabled or disabled.

To reschedule a task with dependencies:

  1. Open a task that is blocking another task.

    Both tasks must have a due date.

  2. Change the due date of the blocking task.
  3. The task that is waiting on that task will automatically change its start and due date by the same amount of time.

Reschedule dependencies in Gantt view

Gantt view provides an excellent way to reschedule many tasks and their dependencies at once.

First, ensure the ClickApp is enabled:

  1. Click Customize in the upper-right corner.
  2. Select Gantt options.
  3. Enable Reschedule Dependencies.

Drag and drop a task with dependencies to an earlier or later date. This will automatically reschedule all dependent tasks in the chain. Read more here.

When rescheduling dependencies from Gantt view, only visible tasks and their dependencies are rescheduled. Dependencies in other locations or dependencies that are filtered out of the view will not be rescheduled.

Reschedule dependencies in List view and Task view

You can also reschedule dependencies from List view or Task view.

When this ClickApp is enabled, changing the due date of tasks with dependencies to a later date automatically reschedules the start and due dates of all of their dependent tasks across the Workspace by the same amount. You will receive a notification in the lower-left corner of your Workspace when this occurs.

Moving the due date of the task with dependencies to an earlier date does not trigger Reschedule Dependencies. Changing the start date of the task with dependencies does not trigger Reschedule Dependencies.
