Link tasks via predecessors


I have created work plan in HP PPM and trying to link task 1 and 2 with a predecessor FS with 0 lag.

For example

Task 1 - 10 days - 15 Sep - 28 Sep

Task 2 - 20 days - 15 Sep - 12 Oct (by default the start date is still showing as 15 Sep even though i have linked this to Task 1 with FS relationship). The status of this task is showing as pending predecessor

I believe, as we do in MS project, tast 2 should be automatically calculated to start from 1 Oct due to predecessor link but it's not changing automatically

Am i missing something here, please help/advice

You should click schedule workplan button in the toolbar to make ppm plan appropriately.
