Guide and Best Practices
A milestone chart is a tool used to visualize milestones, which are the significant planned events that are scheduled to happen during a specific time in a project timeline. It highlights the planned dates and the completion of milestones.
How to plan milestones
Start by defining your project goals. Getting a thorough understanding of the project outcome will help you prioritize tasks.
Identify the project tasks and dependencies and determine the time it would take to complete each individual task.
Identify the milestones you want to set. These could be the completion of major tasks approvals and testing etc. in addition to the beginning and end of the project.
Set a reasonable timeframe. Consider the amount of time and the resources you need to complete each milestone before setting the timeframe.
Create a milestone chart template highlighting the project milestones. You can create one yourself or choose a creately timeline template for this.
Once you customize the Creately milestone chart template, share it with your team by embedding it in your intranet or internal websites using the Creately Viewer.
Add documents or meeting notes to your timeline template by linking shapes. This will help you maintain an updated source for project information.
