Milestones

Milestones are the basic planning unit of Milestone Planner. A Milestone represents a specific point in a project, with a date and usually an owner. Milestones enable you to clearly track a project’s progress and agree how it will be measured. They also make it easy to seen if it is being delivered on time.

Workstreams

To keep even the largest of plans easy to understand and manage, Milestones can be grouped into Workstreams. These provide a quick way to logically organize a project,. A Workstream might represent a team, an area of work or simply be a helpful way to gather a group of milestones together.

Dependencies

Workstreams provide a simple way to support serial dependencies. With dependencies enabled in in a workstream, when a milestone is moved, all of the active milestones after that date will move as well. This makes it quick and easy to replan projects if a milestone is met earlier, or later, than expected.

Projects

A project consists of a project team and a set of milestones, organised into one or more workstreams. For project members not yet on milestone planner, a place holder is used to track their milestones.

Invite users

A project team can be any number of people, from one person to as many as are required, and users can be in as many projects as they need to be. People can be added to projects via a simple, customizable email invitation, and our 30 second sign up process. If they are already a Milestone Planner user, the project is simply added to their list of projects.

Mobile support

Milestone Planner’s mobile-friendly web interface allows you to check milestones and project status on the go. Milestone Planner Mobile works on any smart phone with a web browser and has been tested on Blackberry, iPhone, Android, Symbian and a number of other handsets including Nokia, Motorola and Samsung.
