Linking activities and key moments

There are two ways to set the (start) date of a key moment or activity:

  • You can set an exact (absolute) date. This means that the activity or key moment is not linked to any other activity or key moment. If your project is postponed with three months and you change its start date, any activity or key moment with an exact date will not move as well.
  • You can set a relative date: this means that you indicate that the activity or key moment will start so long before or after another activity or key moment. The most important and most frequently used key moment to refer to is the project's start date. This means that if your project is postponed with three months and you change its start date, all activities and key moments with a relative (linked) start date will move as well.

Apart from the project's start and end date, you can link an activity or key moment to any other activity or key moment. Blue arrows show which activities and key moments refer to a certain key moment. Black arrows show which activities or key moments refer to a certain activity. You can show or hide these arrows using the Lay-out toolbar: in the View section click on the Links to key moments or Links to activities button.
