Driving Path & Summary Path
The length and complexity of many projects require a more detailed way for users to identify critical tasks, but only within a particular hierarchy. Summary path identifies the critical path from a parent row down to all levels of subtasks that roll up to that parent, instead of looking across the entire project.
To enable summary path, right-click on a parent row in a Gantt chart and select Show Summary Path. Smartsheet will calculate the critical, zero-float tasks starting from the first subtask down to the latest end date of any subtask that rolls up to that parent, and outline them.
We’ve also added Driving path. In a large project with many tasks and associated relationships, there will be vital tasks with an important start date. Driving path can span across hierarchies and look “up” the project to highlight all the predecessor activities that may be encroaching on a task's start date.
To enable Driving path, right-click any child or subtask in the Gantt chart and select Show Driving path to easily see which tasks, based on predecessors, affect its start date.
