Annotate your Schedule

Enter text in a variety of locations: attached to a symbol; embedded within the symbol; freely floating on the schedule, within a column cell, in the heading of the column, or as part of the chart title.  Milestones Professional has enough flexibility to make annotating your project schedules easy and painless.
