Linking two tasks in the network view

A dependency (often called a linked task) determines how a task in a task plan is scheduled, in relation to all other tasks in the task plan. A dependency is based on a task's start date and/or finish date. A dependency that determines how other tasks in a task plan are scheduled is called a predecessor. A dependency that relies on another task's start date or finish date to determine how it can be scheduled is called a successor.

You can link two tasks together in the network view. Just select the task from which you want to create the dependency, and then drag it to the task to which you want to create the dependency.
