Creating Links with the Mouse


Creating a predecessor/successor link can be done in several ways. The first and easiest is to use the mouse to link tasks . The first task here applies a link in the Gantt Chart view. The second task shows you how the same method for creating a link with the mouse applies in the Network Diagram view (except that no ToolTip will appear).
