Projects → Task Plan → Dialog Boxes → Task Information → Task Information, Predecessors
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.
A predecessor is a task that determines when another task (a successor) can be scheduled. The default link type for all links between tasks is finish-to-start (FS).
The Predecessors tab in the Task Information dialog box is used to manage predecessor tasks.
