Up till now i used milestones in gantt charts as zero effort items with a deadline date.
I used to set links to other tasks that make sure they only end when linked tasks finish.
That was using MS Project style apps though.
I'd like to get something like that in JIRA as well if possible.
The simplest idea is to set up a separate issue type called "Milestone" and track them as issues. If that doesn't work for you, can you expand a little on why?
Essentially, Structure.Gantt allows you to visualize dependencies and timelines across projects with an adaptable, easy-to-use Gantt chart solution for Jira.
With it, you can also manually set milestones by defining a deadline date.
If you think that's what you are looking for, then, please feel free to shoot us a message.
Hi @Mario O.G ,
At our company we have a situation where we need to track multiple milestones for a single issue. We not only have to track progress, we also need to enter forecast dates as a part of project planning. Would Structure Gantt be able to help track it in a single row? (One row that has the issue and all its milestones)
As long as the milestones are themselves different issues, there's no reason you can't use multiple milestones attached to a single issue.
It's hard to give a solid answer without knowing more details about the use-case, because it may just be easier to break down an issue like "product release" into "product version 1.0 release", "product version 1.1 release", etc. But whatever the case may be, you can connect multiple milestones to a single Jira issue in the Structure.Gantt extension.
However, note that you can't place them all in a single row. The rows are connected one-to-one to a single issue, so an item can only be a task or a milestone.
If you wish to describe your use case a bit more, you can reach our Support Team by writing to email@example.com
We will be glad to help and analyze the case further.
