September 2020 Tips and Tricks

For these and more, view Tips and Tricks for September 2020

Microsoft Teams screen flicker
When using Microsoft Teams to view and share a Milestones file, the Milestones file blinks and all symbols in the graph area disappear.  The file header and columns remain visible but the documents blinks in and out. Is there a solution for this?

Sideways text
I want to show a title to the left of my schedule. I want to show the text in white with a navy background. Is this possible in Milestones?

Add a stoplight column
What is the easiest way to add a stoplight column to my schedule? I want to control the color of the stoplight for each task.

Create a bookmark
I have a large schedule. Other products allow bookmarks to be set to mark key parts of a document. Does Milestones have anything similar?

Publish a PDF with bookmarks
I would like to send my schedule to others as a PDF. Since it is quite large, I would like to use bookmarks in my PDF so that viewers can quickly navigate to sections of my schedule. Does Milestones offer this functionality?

Symbol text too far away from symbol
I have noticed that my symbol text is very far away from my symbols (horizontally) when I make my schedule an odd size. Is there any way to adjust this for all symbols?

Interpreting the symbol attributes report
What does the TE on the symbol attributes report stand for?

Move column on a wide schedule
I need to move a column from the left side of the schedule to the right side of the schedule. The right side of the schedule is off the screen (not visible). How can I move the column?

Logarithmic date headings
My schedule dates are mostly concentrated in the current year but I want to show past years also, as they do have a few key dates. Is there a way to “scrunch up” the past years so they don’t take up as much space on the timeline?

Add baseline when importing from Excel
I am using the import feature from Excel to MS Pro. Can I copy two lines from Excel into one line on MS Pro. I want to display current and baseline.

Show hidden columns when all are hidden
I have hidden all of my columns. How do I bring them back up?

Calculate difference between two milestone dates on a row with many milestones
I have a row with many milestones (20 or so). I would like to calculate the difference between two specific milestones on each row of my schedule. (Start up date and First Delivery Date) Any ideas?

Can’t pick Project file name when refreshing
Usually when I go to refresh a Milestones Professional schedule from Project, I am asked to select the Microsoft Project file name. I have one schedule (only one!) which never prompts me to select a file and I wonder what’s going on. Any ideas?

July 2020 Tips and Tricks

For these and more, view Tips and Tricks for July 2020

Allocate manpower for an upcoming project
I want to be able to determine how many people I might need for an upcoming project. Does Milestones (Professional) have any capability in this area?

Hide a column when printing
Can I hide a column so it doesn’t print?

Hide baseline summary bars
How can one use baseline task bars for sub-tasks but not display them at the summary level?

Import a Project file that is filtered
By default, only filtered tasks are imported into Milestones Professional. So, filter your tasks in Microsoft Project before beginning the Project to Milestones wizard.

Hyperlink from a symbol to a folder
I know that you can link a symbol to another file, but can you link a symbol to a folder?

Passwords and symbol linking
If I password-protect a schedule, will others be able to “link” into my schedule even though they may be read-only? I’m going to be starting a “prime” schedule that has dates that other schedules within the area will be getting dates from. I want to password-protect this schedule from any changes all the while allowing folks to link into it. Will they be able to link?

Get rid of gridlines in your schedule
How do I hide the lines below an individual task row?

Gridlines showing on top of logo
I am trying to make my schedule look better. I added some graphics but the horizontal lines are showing up on top of the picture. Is there anything I can do about this?

Working remotely
I started working remotely last month. Can I use my Milestones license on my personal laptop?

Horizontal connector size
I cannot figure out how to size the connectors to fit the height of my task row. I can size the symbols on either end but cannot make the connector fit in the row.

Chart comparison
When I refresh a Milestones schedule from an updated Excel file can I get a report to see the difference between the original file and the updated file.

Scroll-Lock affects arrow keys
I am trying to move symbols to different outlines within the row but holding down shift and then using the arrow to go up or down. This normally works but is not currently working for me.

Change a symbol’s color

Hyperlinks not working

Percent Complete pie color
When using the Percent Complete SmartColumn, how do you change the color of the pie chart that appears?

Link a Microsoft Project schedule to my Milestones chart
I generated a MS Pro file by hand based on the data in one of my MS Project Files. I just opened MS Pro and begin placing Milestones and Bars in a blank file. The items I placed were based on data within my MS Project File. Is there a way to link the dates on my Milestones Professional schedule to Microsoft Project so I can later update the data in my MS Pro File (the milestones and bars) automatically if the dates in my MS Project File change?

Set Percent Complete for Several Tasks
I really need to set the % complete for individual bars on my schedule. I know I can set them on individual task rows and then roll them up, but frankly I really don’t want to set up an outlined schedule. Is there any way to do this?

Hourly schedules
One of my date headings is set in daily increments. When I add a symbol under a day, it is always set at noon. How can I control where it is set?

Anchor text to a symbol
Is there a way to anchor a freeform text to a symbol?

Remove page breaks
How do I get rid of my page breaks?

Insert page breaks
I need a couple of page breaks in my schedule so that I can have a couple of short pages. Is this possible?

Percent complete is different than Microsoft Project
When I import a Project file, the percent complete readings are not the same in Milestones. Why is that?
