Define milestones

Create release milestones for events within a release's lifecycle, or cross milestones for events that are not connected to any particular release.

Define milestones in the Release Management module

You can define milestones in the Release Management module.

Select whether to create a cross milestone or a release-specific milestone.

In a shared space, select whether to create a shared milestone for all the connected workspaces.

Creating and editing milestones requires appropriate admin permissions.

To define milestones in the Release Management module:

  1. Open the Release Management module, and click the Milestones tab.
  2. Click Add Milestone to define a milestone in the current workspace.

    Click Add Shared Milestone to define a milestone in all the shared space's workspaces.

  3. Select the Release Specific checkbox to indicate that the milestone will be part of a release's timeline. Select a release.

    Leave the Release Specific checkbox empty to create a cross milestone.

  4. Set the milestone's date.
  5. Enter a description and add attachments to the milestone.

Tip: You can also define milestones from within a release's details. Milestones are defined in the Timeline tab, along with sprints.
