The milestones module allows teams to adopt a systematic and stepwise approach towards delivering the product faster by breaking down deliverables in the most effective way for them. With the milestones module:
- A project can be broken down in to measurable and achievable goals
- Milestones can be associated to requirement-linked test cases, bugs, and tasks
- Assign milestone ownership to individuals so they can be the single point of contact for execution of tasks, bugs, and test cases
Any active user who is a project member can view the project's milestones. Depending on a user's project permissions, when updating milestone ownership, a user may see all the project members of just a subset. Similarly when adding tasks, bugs, test sessions and external items to a milestone, a user may see all of those entities or just a subset. This depends on their project permissions which can be managed by a project owner in the Members tab of a project's primary Info tab.
