Problems with enforced dependencies on timeline

Hello everyone.

Using the enforced dependencies for a while now, I have noticed some problems with the automatic update of dependencies.

  1. In Start date + period mode, dependencies are not updated automatically. To address this, I find myself navigating to the timeline settings and manually selecting “Fix all” under “Some Items currently overlap.” Is it intended to function in this manner? Is there any way to automate this process (a formula or button)?

  2. When utilizing start date + period and strict mode, I’ve observed that if a dependent task undergoes a period change, the current task only takes into account whether it occupies the lower row ID in the table. Enclosed is a GIF illustrating the reported issue.


With the start date + end date configuration, the process automatically updates when modifying the end date.
