How to create a milestone

A milestone is a gold, diamond-shaped icon used to represent a major point or goal in a project. They are great for indicating a project kickoff or important deadline. 

Unlike task colors, which can change, a milestone will always appear in gold to emphasize its presence. As such, it's currently not possible to change a milestone's color. 

Here are the steps to create and schedule a milestone onto your project schedule:

1) Click on the Milestone link.

2) Type the milestone name.

3) Drag the milestone across the Gantt chart to schedule it.
