Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

You should check your activity's start and finish date time. Most probably your precedessor activity's finish time is same the successor's start time like that ( Predecessor's finish 01-Nov-16 0:00:00 AM Successor's start 1-Nov-16 0:00:00 AM)


To fix this go edit menu and user preferences/date tab and check the 24 hour box then you ll see date time linked activities.
