If you’re looking to streamline the process of creating your Microsoft Project tasks, I’ve got a nifty trick to share with you. I’ll show you how to create a milestone task in just two clicks of your mouse. Let’s dive right in!
If you would rather watch a YouTube video on this subject, click here or click the thumbnail below.
Complete the following steps to create a milestone task in only two clicks of your mouse:
Create a Milestone Task:
- Click in the task row where you want to insert the new milestone.
- In the ‘Insert’ section of your Task ribbon, click the ‘Insert Milestone’ button.
Microsoft Project automatically generates a new milestone task for you with a dummy task name. All that’s left to do is to give your milestone task a name. For example, if the milestone signifies the completion of the Design deliverable section you can name the milestone Design Complete.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully inserted a milestone task in just two clicks of the mouse.

Why My Microsoft Project Training Courses Stand Out?
In the world of Project Management, mastering tools like Microsoft Project is pivotal. But with a plethora of Microsoft Project Training Courses available, what sets mine apart? Here’s why:
- Two Decades of MVP Recognition: Being honored as a Microsoft Project MVP for 20 consecutive years isn’t just a title I wear. It’s a testament to my deep expertise and unwavering dedication to the field.
- A Repository of Knowledge: With over 20 books to my name, my knowledge in Microsoft Project is vast and varied. Whether you’re an avid reader or a visual learner, I’ve got resources ranging from books to YouTube tutorials to cater to your learning style.
- Customized Training Solutions: I recognize that every organization has unique needs. That’s why I offer tailored Microsoft Project Training solutions, ensuring that every student extracts the maximum value from the course.
- Beyond Just Training: Sometimes, what you need goes beyond conventional training. My coaching and mentoring services are designed to provide guidance at every step, ensuring you’re equipped to tackle even the most complex project challenges.
- A Pillar in the Community: My active role in the Microsoft Project community is a testament to my commitment. I’m not just a trainer; I’m a mentor, guide, and a trusted expert for many.
- Endorsed by the Best: When top-tier organizations entrust their training needs to me, it’s a clear indicator of the quality and value I bring to the table.
In a nutshell, while there are numerous Microsoft Project Training Courses out there, my holistic approach, combined with years of experience and dedication, truly sets my offerings apart. If you still have doubts, check out my YouTube channel.
