One question we receive from time to time is “What is a milestone in a gantt chart”?
A milestone is simply a way to mark an important point in the project. Examples could include:
- Project Kick-Off
- Design Complete
- Phase 1 Complete
- Documents Finalized
Benefits of Using Milestones in Your Projects
When creating your gantt chart, milestones provide a very easy way to see important dates at a glance. This allows others who view your gantt chart to quickly see the big important dates. It’s also a great feeling to complete the milestone and check it off when it’s complete!
