Let's say I have multiple tasks that are supposed to be taken care of one after another. Each has its own date of completion.

  1. task 1 - will be completed on 15 march (1 day)
  2. task 2 - will be completed on 17 march (2 days)
  3. task 3 - will be completed on 18 march (1 day)
  4. task 4 - will be completed on 21 march (3 day)

Suddenly task 2 is delayed by two days. I would like task 3 and task 4's dates be changed accordingly.

Right now I use teamwork. In calendar view, tasks are NOT connected to each other in any way. So if the date of one task changes, the rest stay the same. I need to manually move all tasks on the calendar.

Can such problem be taken care of in teamwork?

    I never heard of teamwork, but every "project management" app I have come across can do that. Did you read their manual or help pages? – nvoigt Mar 18 '19 at 11:35

    No clue which tool you are using, but I would make sure to make estimated end dates depended on the task(s) before it or something – Bart Mar 18 '19 at 12:56
  • Fairly trivial to do this in excel (or google sheets) as well. Are you really asking how to do this in teamwork? – Mark C. Wallace Mar 18 '19 at 13:15

    Please expand your question to describe what you've already tried, and why the various help pages don't address your needs. In particular, there's a page specifically for Changing Dates of Tasks with Dependencies. If that doesn't help you, you'll need to explain why not to provide sufficient context. – Todd A.
