What are Tasks & Milestones?

Tasks and milestones make up the key activities within a plan. A task has a start and end date, whereas a milestone is a single date upon which a deliverable gets completed.

Tasks & Milestones Status

This section is where the user can input key information regarding the plan.

By using the simple dropdown field, the user can select the most appropriate overall status for the plan and provide any associated commentary. This information can be updated in real-time.

Adding Tasks & Milestones

Tasks & Milestones can be added to the project table via Actions > Add Task or Add Milestone.

The form for adding a task or milestone is the same, apart from tasks will require both a start and an end date. Milestones will only require an end date. Task and milestone information can be entered using the simple form containing dropdowns, text, numeric, date and user picker fields.
