Procedure

  1. In the Project form, right-click the header bar and select Project task creator.
    The Child Task Creator dialog box appears.
  2. Enter the quantity of tasks to create.
  3. Select the Create relationships check box to create a finish-to-start dependency between these tasks (when the first task finishes, the next task starts). Clear the check box to create the tasks with no dependencies.
