One question we receive from time to time is, “What is a milestone in a gantt chart”?

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

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!
