Associate To-Do's with Milestones
Right now there is no way to associate a series of to-dos with a milestone. You end up creating multiple projects for various stages of your larger project. Example: Milestone (launch video) todo's: Coordinate location/model; shoot; edit; upload; released. If one of these pushes, the milestone should push.
To use it – you need TODOs and Milestones installed in your project. Check for new icon on right side on TODOs list view.
Please send us your feedback – directly or in UserVoice.
I would love to use freedcamp but I noticed this as a show stopper so I hope this will be available soon!
Very Well, thanks for the answer Angel, can't wait for it ;)
Ability to link TODOs and Milestones is coming up very soon. As to progress calculation, it can be a few approaches. One of them is described by you. Another one will be to allow TODO assignees to update % of completion. Yet another one, which will be possible with our TODO and Time Tracking integration, is when you can set expected hours, track hours with TODO timed logs and calculate % automatically for a TODO and a Milestone.
So in short - TODOs and Milestones integration is coming in soon but as to tracking progress, we have not decided yet how to make in a way to make it possible for everyone to select tracking method, which suits you and ability to select it in a simple way.
Hi, We started using Freedcamp to manage our projects. Only thing I see is missing : link to do to milestones. Example: you end 2 to dos over 5 for a milestone, then your milestone is done 40%. That's a "must have" feature ;)
I know I've made the same suggestion in the past. I'm not sure if there were any votes for that post, but it would be great if we could combine the votes for them and any other similar posts. I think this is a major item for any project management application.
We decided not to roll major new UI version as we do not have resources now to do it. We are starting rolling improvements delayed to version 3 in this version of Freedcamp with 4 times bigger team which now, thanks to our angel investors, works full time.
And When is Version 3 coming?
Great explanation from our user - Kari:
In my mind a milestone is the completion of a major portion of the project and should consist of many to-do's. When all the to-do's for that milestone are done the milestone is completed.
I want to be able to assign a milestone and then create and SEE all the to-do's to complete that milestone.
I also want to be able to brainstorm as I create to-do's and then afterwards break them up and assign milestones.
Does this functionality exist in the free product?
Does the functionality exist in the paid product?
If not could this functionality be added?
This is how goal making is taught and how my mind works. Take big idea/project and break into steps, then break each step into smaller steps/tasks. Or do a brain dump of ideas and then create steps and tasks.
Essentially to make this happen, within the to-do edit page there needs to be a drop-down list of existing milestones and an button to create new one.
By checking a milestone that To-do is assigned to the milestone and the Milestone and assigned to-do's show up together in the To-do list.
When all to-do's are completed under the milestone, the milestone then does a popup question is this milestone complete? Yes marks it as complete, No brings up new to-do entry page.
I hope this is clear, I know this would help me use this product better and be more efficient.
It would be nice to be able to make ToDo Groups Milestones.

good, other point could the time task, relationship with the To do list?
