How to link tasks to milestones in GroupCamp
To improve your project planning you can use milestones with tasks. Milestones are your high-level deadlines in your project, meaning they are important project deadlines which are bound to change throughout the lifetime of the project. To use milestones with tasks, edit a task list then choose a milestone with which to link your task list.
The result is that each task within your task list is considered as being due for that date. So if a milestone were to change during the project, the project manager would only have to move the milestone in the milestone application and all linked tasks would be automatically updated. This means that if a milestone were to be late, all related tasks would appear as being late in the project schedule of the Overview app and in the the Tasks app.
Project managers can use the Milestones application in a project or in the Dashboard to see all the overall planning of projects and use the link icon next to each linked milestone to see the tasks which need to be completed for a deadline to be reached.
Please note that you can still use start dates and due dates in the same task list to express the fact that a particular task is due before the date of a milestone. Such a task would then not be considered as being linked to the milestone.
