Prommpt is using a powerful tool called Milestone Trend Analysis for the planning, managing and documenting of the various deliverables. Our “milestone tracker” also has a built-in function allowing you to record anything against the time of occurrence, which will also be included in the reporting. This is a powerful tool to stay in charge of the deliverables.
- Deliverables List: This listing contains milestones you are tracking in the order of the expected dues date. The milestone title assumes different appearances depending on its condition:
a) Normal when expected due date is no later than planned due date;
b) Black/bold when expected due date is later than the planned due date;
c) Exclamation mark when a milestone is overdue;
d) Red/bold when the expected due date is later than the project end date;
e) Grey when a milestone is marked complete.
- Milestone chart: This chart shows the development of the various milestones over time. Whenever you are changing the expected due date, the line chart goes either up or down. Going up indicates a delay and going down shows that the milestone will be achieved quicker than previously expected.
- Note on node: Prommpt allows you to add a note to any node. Just tap on the node and start writing. This is a great tool to document the historic events that lead to any deviations of a particular milestone.
- Filter: Toggling this switch filters the milestone list to only show those milestones that are either overdue or upcoming in the next 4 weeks.
- Save: Prommpt has an autosave function, which creates a new node whenever you are making changes to a due date. However, milestones that are not being changes remain on the chart “left behind” and tapping the Save icon brings all those milestones to today.
- Add Milestone: Says it all…..
- Planned due date: This is the date you enter when creating the new milestone. By default, the expected due date is the same as the planned due date.
- Expected due date: This is the date you need to update whenever you are doing a review of the milestone and decide to bring it either forward or move it out.
- Linked to: This is a simple text field that allows you to note what the milestone relates to. It is not a physical link but more of a reference. For example, the deliverable must be completed in order to raise an invoice or it might relate to a certain element in your work breakdown structure.
- Comment: In this text field you can add anything relevant and specific to the milestone.
- Completed: When toggling this switch, the milestone will be marked as complete and no longer tracked in the chart. It also moved to the bottom of the list.
