Project Dependency = Task + Time

Is there a way to set a dependency for a project task to be 7 days after a specific task has completed.  

When I add the predecessor, the dependent task assumes that it can start immediately after the completion of the predecessor.  I have tasks that need to happen exactly a week before or a week after a specific task. 

Please Advise.

Thank you - Sarah

Hello Sarah,

Sure this should be possible. You'd set the dependency like so: X ES +7

This to specify that the dependency is regarding the proper WS number of the task in question, it is an End-to-Start relationship where the current task will not start until that specified task is scheduled to end + 7 days.
