Chapter 5. Creating a Task List > Defining Milestones

Defining Milestones

A milestone represents a significant landmark, decision point, or turning point in the life of the project. You commonly use milestones to mark the completion of major phases, dates for deliverables, or other major events in the project. The great advantage of defining milestones is that you can filter the task list to show only the milestones, thereby seeing instantly the important dates that they represent.

You should create milestone tasks at points you want to monitor closely in a project. In a project to construct a building, for example, one milestone might be the completion of all the tasks involved in laying the foundation. The milestone could be named Foundation Completed and have a duration of zero.
