Is there a way to set a look back time when adding a predecessor for a job?
There is not a way to set a look back date for the predecessor of a job in Jobtrac. In Jobtrac you would use the *-nn relative date only with predecessor scheduling. You can use a negative relative date to indicate that the predecessor event is scheduled to run before the primary event. For example, you can specify the relative date *-2 to indicate that the predecessor is scheduled two days prior to the primary event.
As always, please contact CA Technologies Support for CA Jobtrac Job Management if you have further questions.
