Aborting Tasks

The purpose of aborting a task (instead of performing a forced close) is to prevent successors from continuing and to keep the process moving:

  • When a Finish-to-Start or Finish-Error-to-Start predecessor is aborted, its successors remain as Pending. To keep the process moving, you must edit the successors to remove the aborted predecessor and to start the successors.

  • When a Finish-to-Finish or Finish-Error-to-Finish predecessor is aborted, to keep the process moving, the task owner/schedule owner/close administrator must force a close of the successor.
