Activities and milestones
You can custom add activities and milestones to your planning. The difference is that activities contain a start and end date, a certain duration. Milestones are planned on a single date.
To add an activity or milestone, first navigate to the object(group) you want to add it to. By clicking on 'Add row', input fields will be shown. You can enter a name, select the type (milestone or activity) and enter the start date, duration and end date. Once you are done, click on the check icon at the end of the row and the new row will be saved and added to the planning.
A custom activity or milestone can be renamed and deleted (in contrary to the default activities and milestones). Once a custom activity or milestone is added, a checkbox appears in front of the name. When checked, the action bar at the bottom of the screen in which you can delete the selected item.
If you want to keep the planning of an object(group) in sight continuously, it is possible to pin the planning to the screen. You can do this by clicking on the pin icon (fig. 2) that appears on the right side of the name of the object(group) when you hover over it. When clicked, it pins that planning directly underneath the planning that is selected in the left pane (fig. 3). The sequence of the project structure is always kept and you can still edit a pinned planning and you can pin as much plannings as you would like. Click the pin icon again to unpin it from the screen.
