Mike: Mike with Standard Time® with Ray White of Scoutwest the developers of Standard Time. And we’re answering your questions about how to use Standard Time just a little bit more efficiently. How you doing Ray?

Ray: All right.

We got a question from someone who has all these projects that need to start one after another because they’re all linked together. How do we do that within Standard Time?

OK. You’re probably talking about tasks; you have one task that has to start only when the other one has completed. Like a house with a foundation, you can’t do the roofing until you have a foundation and framing and so on.

Right.

So those tasks have to end before another one starts. OK. Let’s switch over to the screen, I’m going to show you real quick how that’s done. I’m going to click on the project tasks tab. I’ve got the Gantt chart display just so you can see the graphical representation of these tasks. I’ll be working on these two; you see these bars, I’m going to go over and select these two tasks. I’m going to right click on those, choose link tasks and what I’ve done here is linked them. Now you can see that this task cannot start until this one ends. You see a couple icons over here that show that those are linked. And that’s really all you have to do.

So you’ve just made a lot of people’s lives easier; more organized that’s a good thing. Go to the website and download it if you haven’t. You’re not going to regret it. Let us know what you think. If you have more questions submit them there and we’ll answer them right here in the land of the interwebs.
