Problem Definition: We always wanted a way in which we could create a milestone in the project WBS. Milestones are the way in which we can mark the task by stating that it’s a deliverable task. How can we achieve this functionality in Project Operations?
Please follow the steps to mark the task as milestone in Project Operations (PO) P4W.
Open your PO environment and navigate to Projects à Tasks Tab
Add a task by and name, in this case I have added the task by the name “Milestone task 1”.
Make following columns visible “Effort”, “Start” and “Finish”.
Make the effort to 0 and ensure the Start and Finish Dates are same. This will ensure your task is made as a milestone.
Now navigate to the Timeline view and you can check whether the task is created as a milestone task or not. If the Timeline shows a diamond icon, that means it is a milestone task that is created.
