Is a milestone task a set date?

Avatar

Level 1

Hi! I have been looking into adding milestone tasks to a project after creating a milestone pathway. Once a task is assigned a milestone, does the date become set? We are having some trouble with dates adjusting in schedules and would like a way for a few of our deliverable dates to remain fixed in the project and not change if dates around it are adjusted. Thanks!

No, a milstone only signifiesa "milestone" in the project timeline. Dates flow on milestone tasks like any other task.

Best practice is to use milestones on parent tasks, so you can group the tasks together under a milestone.

The way to fix a date is to type in the start or planned completion date manually, thereby changing the constraint to Must Start On or Must Finish On.
