Milestones are important due dates for your projects. These may be public release dates or publisher deliverable deadlines but they can also used for weekly or monthly sprint dates.
The Milestones tab is one of the three main views in Codecks and home to everything that relates to milestones. Each card can be assigned to one milestone. The milestone view allows you to see all cards belonging to that milestone independent of which project, deck or status they are currently in.
Go the milestones view (by clicking or by pressing
shift + 3 on your keyboard) and click the plus button next to ‘Timeline’. Click on the preferred date and enter the new milestone data:
Cards with milestones will show a small milestone diamond icon. Hover over the icon to see more information about the current completion progress and the due date.
Note that the opacity changes. If the color fully opaque, it means it’s part of the next milestone of that color. If the icon is lighter the milestone is either in the past or further in the future.
Milestones which contain only done and archived cards, are shown as outlines on the timeline. This allows you to quickly scan the timeline for undone cards that are still assigned to past milestones. Usually it is best to apply a new future milestone to these cards or to archive them in case they are not relevant anymore.
You can assign a milestone to a card in various ways:
There can only be one milestone assigned to a card. To distribute a task over multiple milestones you can consider using hero cards.
Once a future milestone is present, the top left area shows a countdown button that allows you to jump directly to a milestone that is most relevant to you at the moment. By default it always displays the next upcoming milestone.
You can override the shown milestone by pinning a different one. Click on the pin button on the countdown button to select a milestone from the calendar pop-up. Clicking on the current milestone will remove the currently pinned milestone. You can also click on the pin button from the milestone header bar of each milestone. When you pinned a milestone, the countdown button won’t switch to a different milestone until its due date or until you choose a new pinned milestone.
You can delete a milestone by clicking on the bin icon in the milestone header bar. Doing this won’t delete the cards, but unassign all the cards from the deleted milestone. If the milestone still contains undone cards, you’ll get a warning informing you about the number of cards this deletion will affect.
