On Aphex, Logic Links can exist between tasks to indicate dependencies in your plan. Links can exist between parent tasks, or between children. When you break down a parent, children will automatically be linked and external links will be transferred to children.
There are four types of link on Aphex:
Creating Logic Links
Drawing Links on the Gantt
Logic Links can easily be drawn between Tasks on your Gantt. Hover your cursor over a Task Bar and click and drag the circle that appears either side of the bar to start drawing your link, then drop the link on a circle either side of another bar. The direction you draw your link determines your predecessor and successor, and the side of the bar you pick determines link type.
By default, all Logic Links will have 0 days lag. Hold down the SHIFT key while drawing your link to configure a link with lag that reflects the current dates of your two tasks.
Creating Links using the Inspect Panel
You can create a link to a task anywhere in the plan using the Linked Tasks section of the Inspect Panel to create a link. Select your task and open up the Inspect Panel on the right hand side of your plan. Use the Linked Tasks Section to view the selected Task’s predecessors and successors, and to create new links.
Editing Logic Links
Editing Links on the Gantt Grid Type and Lag
Click on a Logic Link to open the Link Pop-over, here you can edit link type, link lag or delete the link.
Editing Links using the Inspect Panel
You can use the Linked Tasks section of the Inspect Panel to edit a task's links. Select your task and open up the Inspect Panel on the right hand side of your plan. Open the Links Modal to view and change the link type or lag of existing links.
