|Everyone seems to be after the one page project presentation. While keeping it simple might be a good idea, sometimes you just really need to put ALL the information onto one sheet. In this issue of Major Milestones we will explore some topics which will help you get your project presentation onto a single page.|
In a report that contains extensive data, how can action-items be quickly highlighted and addressed?
Indicator symbols, or stoplights, are a great method for determining, at-a-glance, which project items need attention. Indicators help make your schedule compact.
Milestones Professional uses the Stoplight SmartColumn to display built-in green, yellow, red, and blue indicators, or up to 10 custom stoplights.

Question: I have several manufacturing jobs and want to figure out a way to use Milestones to manage my employees. I have several jobs for which I want to allocate employees. I want to be able to keep the number of employees level over a time period. Can I accomplish this?
Answer: Yes! Using a Milestones Professional Datagraph you can visualize your workload quite easily. Just enter the work requirements into a column and let Milestones "spread" the work across your timeline.
Choose a column based "ValueSet" using daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly increments (weekly works best for resource allocation).
