by | Oct 9, 2023 | Oracle Primavera P6 PPM

Oracle Primavera P6 released a Relationship Comments function with Version 20 which now allows users to add comments to a relationship.

These are useful to be able to add comments to a relationship to record for example why a relationship has been assigned or changed or what a lag or lead value represents.

This is a very useful function and in the past one had to either use a Note or a UDF assigned to either the predecessor or successor activity to record notes about a relationship.

A Comments column may be added to the Activities window Relationships, Predecessor and Successor tabs:

The comment is seen in both the Predecessor and Successor window of each relationship assigned a comment:

The Comments column is available in the Activity Relationship report:

Unfortunately, a Relationship Comment may not be displayed in an Activity window column and a user is forced back to using a UDF to display this information in Gantt chart printouts.
