Reference → Glossary → C → Critical (field)
Indicates whether a task is on the critical path. The critical path is based on the longest possible sequence of tasks, factoring in their start dates, finish dates, dependencies, and constraints, and then comparing the calculated finish date of the last task in the sequence to the planned finish date for the task plan. A task on the critical path must be finished on time in order for the task plan to be finished on time.
