For AzureDevops/TFS dependencies at a Kendis board, it's possible to select the trigger to change the status of the dependencies automatically.

In this article, we will explain in detail, what these options are and how they work.

Auto update Dependency status of Parent item if

This has 2 options

1) When Target Parent Item updates to Done

"Target Parent" item means the feature card that receives the dependency.

At the Kendis board the arrow points towards this feature card.

If this option is selected, whenever the target feature status is marked as done, the dependency status will change to "Resolved" and the dependency line will go green.

Important to note here is, if the feature has multiple dependencies, all of them will be resolved.

2) When Source Parent Item updates to Done

"Source Parent" item means the feature card that creates the dependency.

At the Kendis board the dependency line starts from this card and goes toward the other feature card.

If this option is selected, whenever the source feature status is marked as done then the dependency status will change to "Resolved" and the line will go green.

Important to note here is, if the feature has multiple dependencies, all of them will be resolved.
