An activity can be specifically marked as a milestone in Easy Projects. To collate and present available information on existing milestones, the Milestones report is used. Technically, any milestone is a parent activity, i.e. one with sub-activities.
NB: In Activity Center, milestone activities are identified with a milestone marker ().
To create a milestone:
- In Activity Center, click the activity you want to mark as a milestone.
- In Activity Details section, locate the Type of Activity selector.
- Click the Not Milestone marker () left of the selector to toggle it to its opposite (Milestone) state ().
- The change takes effect immediately.
NB: You can unite a group of existing tasks under a milestone by simply selecting it as their parent task. See Related links below on how to add sub-activities.
