Create a milestone

A milestone is a reference point that marks a major event in a project and is used to monitor the project's progress. Any task with zero duration is automatically displayed as a milestone. You can also mark any other task of any duration as a milestone.

Create a milestone with zero duration
  1. Select „Gantt Chart” in the „Views” toolbar icon.
  2. Type „0” in the „Duration” field of the task you want to change.
    Note
    When you enter a duration of zero for a Task, iTaskX displays the milestone symbol on the Gantt Chart on that day.
  3. Press „RETURN” ⏎ to set values and leave the edit mode.
Create a milestone with a duration of more than zero

Milestones typically have zero duration; however, some milestones may need a duration. For example, your project has an approval milestone at the end of a phase, and you know that the approval process will take a week.

  1. Select the desired task.
  2. Click on the „Entry-Info-Inspector” Entry-Info-Inspector and select the „Show as milestone” check box in the „Appearance” pane.
