What is Finish to Start dependency?

1 Answers

The Finish to Start dependency is the default link type applied. It forces a task to start only when/after its predecessor has finished; predecessor finishes and the other starts. A link can also have a “lag” value specified. Finish-to-start is the most common dependency type. If a nonzero lag is present, it is added to the Start date; otherwise, the task starts immediately after the predecessor is completed. A positive lag value will create a gap between the finish of one task and the start of another. Note: On Mac and iPad devices, you can also set task dependencies by typing the value in the Successors column.
