Use Lists as Milestones
Lists act as containers for your tasks and include numerous features to help you meet larger goals.
- List Details: A comprehensive activity feed and description of the tasks located within. Add assigned comments, attachments, descriptive commentary, and more.
2. Due Dates: Set a due date within the List Details for your entire List of tasks. This due date represents your true milestone for completing a specific group of tasks.
Simply archive the List once you've completed your goal!
