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?

    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

  • Fairly trivial to do this in excel (or google sheets) as well. Are you really asking how to do this in teamwork?

    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.
