Create a milestone

A milestone is a project task with a duration of zero (0). Use milestones to mark key dates in your project, such as key decision points, approvals, and holidays.

Before you begin

Role required: it_project_manager
Note: In previous releases, the it_project_manager role was named project_manager.

Procedure

  1. Create a project task and give the Duration field a value of 0.
  2. Open the planning console Gantt chart and verify that it appears as a diamond.

Result

A dependency on a milestone

Milestones are treated like any other project task and you can create dependencies between tasks and milestones.

Note: Milestones cannot be shared between different projects unless one project is nested under another project.
