There are many ways to set up milestones. For more options, see the full list here. This article reviews milestones that track something other than hours, how it'll appear on a report, common examples, and how to configure it.
This configuration is when an organization doesn't need to track hours, but something else in their organization, as long as it's a numeric field. Examples include:
To configure milestones by activities, go to your Organizer Dashboard
Click on the Settings tab, then click on Hour Log
Click on Add Field to add a field that you would like to manage other than hours. Insert a title and make sure that the field type is a Numeric Text Field.
For additional field options, click on the "+" sign next to the title.
Next, under the Settings tab, click on Milestones
You can also set up a custom time frame. For example: if you want to set up hours for a school year that runs from September to June, you would select Every 1 Year starting on 9/1/2018.
Milestones automatically reset after each specified timeframe, until changes are applied or turned off.
