Milestones are key points in a project, they can be used to indicate if the project work is on track to meet the Completion date for the Project.

  • A project can have multiple Milestones, each with their own due dates.
  • Project Tasks can be created and linked as Counting towards Milestones. As linked tasks are completed, the Milestones percentage progress will automatically be increased.
