Your tasks in a project can schedule independently, or in sequence. In sequential projects, you cannot start a task until the previous task in the sequence is completed.

By default, SkedPal assumes your tasks in a project can schedule independently.

To set a project to schedule sequentially, go to the project properties, and set the project to sequential. Once you turn on the sequential option, SkedPal ensures the project tasks are scheduled in sequence.

Notice that once you set your project to sequential, you have another option that allows you to schedule all your sequential tasks, or just the next one. In the case of the latter, only the next sequential project is scheduled. Once you complete the step, the next task will get scheduled, and so on.

Sub-tasks are always scheduled sequentially. To create a sub-task, just press the tab key. Always plan your sub-tasks at the parent level.
