Video: Quick view in Milestones Professional 2021

See how our new Quick view feature works in Milestones Professional 2021. You can import a Primavera XER, MS Project MPP or MS Project XML file quickly to see the contents of that file.
It’s a good way to quickly check out a file to see what is actually inside it, without needing to have MS Project or Primavera P6 installed.
