Task Dependencies - Must start at commencement of another task
 
Hey there.

I am working on projects where one task commences immediately as another finishes.

For example,

take cake out of oven - Cook 1 (Resource)
time for cake to cool - No resource

Obviously the cake starts cooling as soon as the previous task starts.

How can I fix the start time of taking the cake out of the oven to the start of the cooling time?

What probably makes the most sense here is to use a lead time for the cooling period. Make a finish-start dependency from the "take cake out of oven" task to the task where you remove it from its pan or decorate it or whatever, and assign the necessary delay by editing the dependency in the editor. Select the task, bring up the editor, tap on Sdheduling, tap on the > in blue next to the dependent, edit the lead time.
