I would like to be able to set dependency types between different tasks and between tasks and summaries.
Dependency types should indicate how the tasks should be placed in relation to each other:
* Start when previous task ends (this is how it works today)
* Sharing end point/ends at the same date
* Contained within (summary contains one or more tasks/summaries)
* Sharing start point/starts at the same date
The dependency types will be used to calculate the start/end time for the different tasks.
This makes it a lot easier to handle delays or replanning of projects where moving one task affects several other tasks. Today all tasks have to be moved manually unless the relation is that they should be done after each other.
