What is a aunt task / Relationship & assigning dependencies with parent/child tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I am new to project management, and learning my way around OmniPlan.
Could you please direct me to resources on aunt tasks?
Thank you.
An "aunt" task is a peer of the parent of the task. I'm not actually sure where that terminology originated; presumably, it was coined by one of the outlining apps that predated OmniOutliner.

I believe the feminine pronouns were chosen because it was historically easier to reliably determine inheritance/lineage through that side of the family tree.
