Using Milestones Professional with Microsoft
Microsoft Project is not required to be
installed to use the Milestones Professional software. Microsoft Project is
only required if you wish to import data from or refresh data from an MS
Project file or MS Project Server file. Milestones Professional officially
supports Microsoft Project versions 2007 and newer (this includes Project
2010, Project 2013, and Project 2016 as of this writing).
Access to the Internet is not required for
Milestones to function. Certain user initiated optional functions within
Milestones, such as some items in the Help menu, as well as other places in
the program, will attempt to access the Internet either directly, or via a
browser launch. If site policies or the firewall at your site prevent this,
then a system administrator at your site may have to add Milestones to an
exception list if you want the above features to operate. All of these
Internet access features are optional and are not crucial to the functioning
of the software. All of the above functions can also be done by directly
accessing the KIDASA web site via a browser. Milestones never attempts to
access the Internet on its own. All Internet access attempts are the result
of the user requesting it via a menu or button press.
Access to your mail program or mail server is not required for Milestones to function. Certain features in Milestones, such as the ability to send Milestones files by clicking on the Send option in the File menu or by triggering an import or export of data from or to Outlook may require a system administrator at your site to alter settings within Outlook or to alter company policies regarding third party access to Outlook or email data. Milestones has no way of circumventing your own site mail or file access settings. Milestones files can easily be attached to an email message using the Attach File option in your email program, thus even if your site file or email access policies prevent the Send button from functioning you can still email schedules.
