A milestone definition is a list of tasks that need to be completed before a block can be marked as 100% completed. Each item in a milestone definition has a number that defines its percentage contribution to a block’s total progress. Managers can assign one of these definitions to a block(s) in place of raw progress updates, to better enumerate what work has been completed. Milestones can be completed in any order and are not intended to be sequential.
The Milestone Definitions table includes:
Blocks – the number of current blocks using that milestone definition
Closed Blocks – the number of closed blocks using that milestone definition
Steps – the number of milestone steps that make up the milestone,
Adding a Milestone
