Circular dependency is a scenario that is not allowed in Team Task Manager. It occurs when you try to create task dependencies that are not logically possible.
Listed below are two such examples:
- Task 2 can not be started because it is dependent on Task 1 to finish. In this case, you can not create a task dependency from Task 2 to Task 1.
- Task 1 is dependent on Task 2 which is dependent on Task 3 (see the above figure). In this case, you can not create a task dependency from Task 3 to Task 1.
To sum it up, you can not create a task dependency from a Successor to the Predecessor.
