How to creating a validation rule.

I would like to create a validation rule that prevents a task from becoming executable until it's predecessor has been completed.  Can you help me with that?

Hi Jon, there is an "executable" field that is only set to true if there are no active predecessors. Are you using this field?

I see that the executable field does not become true until the predecessor has been completed.  I guess what I'm trying to do is prevent a task from being completed regardless of if is executable or not.  I'd like it to be totally dependent on the predecessor being completed.

You would create a validation rule on Tasks where the criteria is $Executable = False && $Status = 'Complete'

That means that is a task is not executable and someone tries to market it as complete, it will trigger a validation message. If you would like a step-by-step walkthrough I would recommend hopping on one of our Q&A webinars (http://webinars.clarizen.com)
