Dependencies on Deferred Tasks

Can deferred tasks be dependent on one another?

Hey Jenna, welcome to Wrike Community 🙂
You cannot set dependencies to deferred Tasks. It would be great if you could clarify how you see dependencies with these Tasks, as the status means that they are currently on hold.
Please get back to me if you have further questions 👍

This would be useful. Our team plans prospective projects and assigns them to team members to get a sense of potential workload. 

I don't want these tasks hitting my teams to do lists until they are confirmed and labeled with an active task status. But it would still be handy to have the ability to set dependencies on them when they are deferred.

One of the first things you would want to do with a task on hold in the real world is reschedule it (along with all the tasks that depend on it) for a later time. Projecting workloads is impossible without being able to reschedule tasks on hold and the best way to reschedule tasks in a dependency chain is to use the dependency chain to do it. Having deferred tasks break dependency chains seems both undesirable and arbitrary to me. Please fix this.

Hey guys, thanks a lot for sharing your feedback here!

I've moved this post to the Product Feedback sections for other Community members to upvote 👍 Once it reaches 60 votes, our Product team will add a status here, and we'll be updating it regularly. More info here:

In the meantime, perhaps the lag time could help?  It allows indicating the wait period before the next task in a chain can start. Here's more info on our Help Center: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/209604229-Dependencies-on-the-Gantt-Chart-#lag

Hope it helps!

Upvoted!  This is a vital enhancement to help support our enterprise-wide project planning.  I hope this gets on the radar soon as it's a significant detriment to our planning efforts when we build dependencies only to lose them if someone needs to temporarily put a task on hold.
