The tasks are shifiting to next following day if multiple tasks of few hours assigned to a resource with dependency

  1. Added two tasks of 4 hrs duration and assigned to a resource.
  2. Task1 dependency is linked to task2.
  3. Task2 start data and end date moved to next day after dependency is added to task2, eventhough 4 hrs left on first day for the resource.

Please suggest how to move the task2 to the same day of task1.

Thank you for approaching us.

The time gap within two dependent tasks is based upon the type of dependency and the Lag Time. By default, the Lag time is 1 day. Here, you can use 'Start to Start' dependency, which would schedule both the tasks on the same day.
I am providing a screenshot for better understanding below:
