Everything You Need to Know about Project Management 'Milestones'!

 

Incorporating key milestones to Pipeline projects could not be easier!  Milestones are benchmarks for each Pipeline project created.  Leverage these milestones to have a gauge in what progress the project has made.  This will allow project owners to delegate bigger progress among their team.  Here is what all project owners need to know regarding milestones within projects:

Table of Contents

Creating Milestones

  • As an administrator, to add a milestone to the project, conduct the following:
    • Navigate to your project in Pipeline
    • Select "Milestones" sub-tab
    • The project owner, team member and/or system administrator must add the following to the milestone:
      • Milestone Title
      • Milestone Description
      • Milestone Date
  • When finished, select "Create Milestone"

Associating To-Do's with a Milestone

  • For each milestone, there could be many to-do's before the milestone is considered complete.
  • In order to associate To-Do items with a specific milestone, first select an individual milestone then drag a To-Do from the right-hand side to the bottom To-Do panel.
  • This will associate a specific To-Do with the Milestone

Marking a Milestone Complete

  • Once all the underlying to-do's for the milestone are complete and/or if the project team member / administrator wishes to check off a milestone as complete - they can do so.
  • To mark a milestone complete - navigate to the 'Milestones' subtab for the project, right click on the milestone and select "Mark as Complete".
