Set Successor starts as soon as possible by default for a new work predecessor

Hello
In gui, there is an option to add a new work order predecessor through a work order but by default the predecessor is set to Successor Starts only if Predecessor is closed. Users can manually change this to Successor starts as soon as possible but I want to set this by default through admin console. There is a system action called Update Predecessor to wait. I have tried to create a UI rule as follows:
when an item has been opened
condition : template item equals work order predecessor (but it shows as item equals null not sure why)
action : system action update predecessor to wait

and it does not seem to work. I have tried options such as when new item is opened, before the item has been saved....
Next, I have tried the rule without the condition too but nothing seems to work.

Can someone help?
Thanks
Anju

Hello Anju,

Open Administrator Console, go to Data/Templates/Work order Predecessor. Select an existing template or create a new, open it and check "Default template".

Then double click "Successor starts Only if Predecessor is Closed" and check it or uncheck it.

From now on, when you add a predecessor it will use the settings defined on that template.
