With the Connections feature, you can quickly create and identify relationships between Bars and Containers on your roadmaps. They are a great way to show dependencies between related items.
Add a Connection
To create a Connection, you’ll first need to turn them on for your roadmap. To turn on Connections, click on any Bar or Container and then the ellipsis to open up the bar menu:
Once you’ve turned on Connections, you can begin adding them to Bars and Containers across your roadmaps. Click the connection icon on connected bars to see which items they require or are required by. You can also hover over a connection icon to view the linear relationship between dependencies on your roadmap. You can connect bars on the same roadmap, or across multiple roadmaps.
Note: When searching for bars or containers to add a connection to, be sure to type out the full word. This way you'll be sure the correct item is being pulled to make the connection.
Select and Move Dependencies
You can now hit the
command key and select the Connection icon on the bottom right side of a bar or container to select and move the dependent items. You also have the option to do this in bulk actions mode.
View all Dependencies
To see all the Dependencies on your roadmap simply click on the connections icon on the bottom right of your roadmap, and you will see all your dependencies displayed.
