Recalculate the ID of activities


(Zoli Vajda) #1

Is there any posibility to recalculate the ID of the activities in GanttProject ?

No. What’s the point of recalculating pretty meaningless identifiers?

Thank you for your reply, it is not important, most likely an OCD kind of thing than something paractical :slight_smile: but
I thought maybe there is a way, and of course I am interested in bulk kind of approach when I can modify all ID’s to get them in order.

All the best,
Zoli

If your intention is to get human-understandable identifiers which can tell something about tasks, you may want to use column “Outline number”. It is hierarchical task identifier which updates automatically as tasks move around.

It will be really great if you could define “Predecessor” as an “Outline number” not as a “ID”. Is it possible?
